The Moon's Reply - Poem by Sameer Daniel Gardner
The moon said to a cloud
So that my glow the earth can see,
For in the course of day,
Only a few hours are given to me.'
The cloud mocked 'Who will you glow for?
The no. of people are few,
Who will look up and praise you,
And even if they do,
Their praises will never reach you.'
The moon replied:
'I glow not for praise nor for adoration,
But in this weary night for hope and inspiration.
I am an impression of the sun's light,
To prove there will be day,
No matter how long the night.'
The cloud moved away.
I the poet can merely learn, admire and stare,
And write down praises for the moon,
Which would never reach up there....
