Dark Dawn - Poem by David Taylor

I have just learnt that later tonight
the earth will cover the moon.
It will be so horridly dark,
all the ladies are likely to swoon.
And the children will laugh
to see such fun,
when the earth covers the sun,
and throws into darkness the moon.
When its light is put out,
darkness, will descend in the night,
and as it comes out, returning to light,
we will see a dark dawn, with a moon.
