Features bonus Flower Moon era instrumental Track "Fauna of the Dances" (not on original).

Garnering florid reviews, “Full Flower Moon” is said to be “…wafting through the room like a soft breeze on a warm, summer’s eve or the ripples on a pond from a casually skimmed stone. “

Hmm..., yes, and the critics opine:
“Delicate, wistful, romantic and unforgettable, this is a fine addition to an already impressive discography and another early highlight of [the Folklore of the moon] series.” - Foxy Digitalis

While eliciting likewise poetic reveries in the Orient:
“There moonlight dreams, intermittent rain, an old camel. the rain is the best partner In Gowan Ring, and some strange chemical reaction occurs when a combination of both in the "Full Flower Moon" - Watercress Music Review, China

Track Name: Limpid Brook
When I was a child
You had appeared to me
On one May moonlit night
In verdant meadow
On bank of the limpid brook

Three, as equals in
Grace and modesty
Queens, all three
Full of majesty
In verdant meadow
On bank of the limpid brook


You stepped toward me
In robes, floating like mist
I, as your child
You enticed me
To your proud breast

I am drawn close
To diaphanous light
In my clenched hands
Your bosom, white
Upon your fruitful manna
I gratefully feed

When I was a child
You had appeared to me
On one May moonlit night
In verdant meadow
On bank of the limpid brook

Three, as equals in
Grace and modesty
Queens, all three
Full of majesty
In verdant meadow
On bank of the limpid brook
Track Name: Moon Over Ocean
The moon crawls up slow over the ocean
Water seeps about our perching rock
Tides arise sounding the motion
Lapping, seeping soft around the dock

Barnacle and bladderwack touch to skin
Squishing onto shins and roughened feet
Billowing strands in undulation
Come alive in the water's rising sheet

I could be the moon over your ocean
I could rise up in your wide sky
I could lift the wind for your sails
I could raise your highest tide

Seasons come and go, everything changes
Images in clouds passing by
The picture emerging rearanges
Soft in the hues of morning sky

I could be the moon over the ocean
I could rise up in the wide sky
I could lift the wind for their sails
When midnight winds subside
Track Name: Aurora
aurora of the valley
of the mountain of the stream
where have you taken my love?
oh where have you taken my love?
through fields of wildflowers honey and wine

maroon clover was he your lover
are you now in his arms, oh are you now in his arms
i have been held though now he is gone
the fauna took his body from mine

fauna of the dances
did he color your branches, whisper to me
the words he wrote on your forest deep
his mind is boundless, silent words
no longer are held in the pages of the passing of time

marigold of the night
mist drawn dew upon your tongue
did he shake beneath you long
in passion i swam beneath the sea
i found him there waiting for me
he has paddled through the waves of my golden hand there
his eyes are crystal, all of the world
is a stranger enchanted by the sheen

aurora of the valley
of the mountain of the stream
where have you taken my love?
where have you taken my love?
where have you taken my love?
