    And we both hide it well
    Under the cover of darkness.

    I give him my company,
    He gives me his light

    Excellent imagery, placing the absurd in the context of the ordinary so delightfully. Thank you!

    An excellent poem, and so very true, all of us at times think we are alone, but in reality there is always some one or something to keep us company.

    This is one of the lovelier poems I have read expressing adulation for the moon, it has some original ideas that I don't think I have read expressed before, like the moon being sad in its own state of loneliness for not having someone to share love with. I like how it then becomes your story and the moon, it almost feels enchanting.

    But I knew we'd meet again,
    We share an emptiness,
    And we both hide it well
    Under the cover of darkness.

    Now we meet each night,
    The moon and I,
    He seems happier now
    From when I first saw him cry;

    Powerful and moving. A favorite of the ones I have read, and like a said one of the best poems about the moon. (Report) Reply

    AMAZING how you AND i are such great poets! ! ! ! ! ! great rhyming AND reason.

    this is another one for MyPoemList! bri :)

    AND, not that you were 'grousing' (not the bird) :


    Mooning Over The Moon

    Let's flip the coin and see the story’s other side!
    You know, it’s NOT just “lovers” the moon does see.
    There are others who, from the moon, can’t hide.
    Seeing THEM is like getting hit in a crater by my knee.

    At least YOU can “hide” in your garden or your house.
    You don’t see all the lonely night-folk who are soused.
    You don’t (I hope) see the mugger or other rotten louse.
    Maybe you FEEL better now, and now, less ……you will grouse.?

    But maybe this POEM is not going to do you much good,
    so I hope the Moon keeps visiting in your neighborhood.
    Please say “Hello” to your pal, the Moon, for me …..and………
    assure him I have NO plans to land in his crater with my knee!

    Loneliness was my middle name;
    We share an emptiness,
    And we both hide it well
    Under the cover of darkness. Haaaaaaaa wonderful expressions in clear terms. your simplicity in using words and how you express yourself in these wonderful verses attracts me. thank you. tony

    I give him my company,
    He gives me his light.. haaa wonderful expres (Report) Reply

    Such a sweet and universally accessible poem. It could easily be adapted to children's poetry, by modifying the term *lovers*. Many children and teenagers could find meaning in and connection with the theme of loneliness. Who among us - young and old - hasn't found companionship with our satellite, the Moon? Even in our darkest hours, we can always gaze at the moon. Great poem! (Report) Reply
