Legend of the Moon People Poem by e.e. wilholt


Two moons circle
a remote garden planet
The moon spirits become restless
and go down to walk the garden path

The Great Fire in the sky
smiles upon them and they
each become small moons
reflecting His day star light

Crossing paths one evening
both are drawn to the light of the other
Hand in hand, they now walk
the garden path together

He is Tortoise Moon
and she is Laughing Moon Woman
He is a gradual receding tide,
kind and gentle.
Passionate and impatient,
she is the rush of tide returning

May two moon people ever orbit
in perfect symmetry,
bound by the inimitable force
of gravitational attraction
