Father Comforts Tearful Nora,6 - Poem by Donal Mahoney

I think you're right, Nora.
There must be a Man in the Moon
and a Man in the Sun

changing light bulbs all day long.
They are shy gentlemen
the garden gnome said yesterday.

A smile from you, I'm sure,
would make them blush.
The Man in the Moon

might hide behind a cloud
and the Man in the Sun
might dive behind a star.

But now and then
both of them would peek to see
if Nora ever smiles again
