Sun and Moon

The Sun and Moon, with fork and spoon,
Have supper every night
Of moonshine gleams and sunshine beams
To taste each other’s flight.

The Moon will cry, “My tongue! Oh my!
Why is there so much heat?”
“And yours is cold,” the Sun will scold,
“Too cold I cannot eat.”

And so they leave what they perceive
A dinner not done right
And then proceed to go and feed
More thankful appetites.

    1. Which in turn makes me smile too 🙂

  1. I love this nursery rhymn quality…it reminds me of when I was little…great! So, since you’ve been so generous with flags and beaver tails, the least I can do is send you a great nutella pizza, a perfect dessert idea when children come visiting! 🙂

    1. I’m rather stuffed from eating one too many peanut butter cookies, but thankfully virtual desserts don’t take up too much extra room in the tummy. *nom nom nom* ahhh, just right 🙂

      1. Ahhhh….peanut butter cookies…envy! 😉

  5. So that’s what the Milky Way is. Last night’s curry being regurgitated.

    1. My Milky Way poem was written a few weeks ago. This is about the Sun and Moon. You sound like you’re hankering for Indian food but are afraid of food poisoning.

      1. Actually I had a chicken korma for my tea last night. I suspect it’s repeating on me.

  6. Love love love, you really should write a kids book

  18. Tried to follow, entered correct e-mail address, got WordPress message to “try again with a genuine email address”.

    I think this is a WordPress problem: it happened before with someone else’s site and then mysteriously sorted itself.

    1. WordPress does funny things sometimes. Annoying when it happens, but the problems do tend to sort themselves out, like you say. 🙂

  19. I love how you incorporate the galaxy into your poems 🙂

    1. I don’t know how they sneak themselves into my poetry. They are quite pushy in that way. 😛
