Treasure Island

The Moon


The sun comes by day,
and the moon comes by night,
but both are such a spectaculair sight,
I could just grasp the sun in the palm of my hand,
like a hot, fiery ball of sand,
and the moon would be a snowball so cold and so light,
it was no wonder it came out at night.

The sun and the moon both give light,
but just a bright one by day,
and dimmer at night.
The never ending sky should also be praised,
its white clouds moving like a never ending maze.

So just remember as you go out at night,
both the moon and sun are a beautiful sight,
and since the moon wont stay when its light,
the sun comes by its beautiful day, moon by never ending night.

    The moon doth reflect the light given it by the dieing sun...

    And every now and then the moon forgets to go to bed and stays up late to great the rising sun....
