Short Talk With The Moon


I looked out of the window
And saw such a beautiful sight
The moon smiling at me oh!
His smile lights up the dark night.

I playfully smiled at him and
Asked ‘Why you stay awake all night? '
He looked at me, his smile a bit dim
‘Then who will ensure that you sleep tight? '

Still not convinced, I asked yet again
‘Don't you get bored on a lonely night? '
‘No never! I always have snores of men
To keep me company and your lamp light! '

He then said, ‘Now you sleep little girl,
When you wake up, I won't be here.
I will be on the other side of the world,
But I will keep an eye on you from there! '

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
