A Song for The Moon

Once, there was a girl, 

Who sang a lively tune 

Every day the Sun went down  

To greet the handsome Moon 

When the Sun was up, however, 

She would always wear a frown 

So the Gods had to pull the lever 

To make the Sun go down 


Her song was that of a love, long forgot 

Imaginary marriage vows made all for naught 

She wished the Gods would never, ever 

Stop pushing against that big, Sun lever 

So that she could sing forever 

To the Man on the Moon
