Have you seen

The moon at noon,

As a pale reflection,

A mere cartoon?

Does it make,

You wonder why,

While stealthy gazing,

at the sky?

Why the moon,

Does seem follow,

The yellow sun,

Like a silver shadow?

With a secret smile,

Upon its face,

Does it mean

To take its place?

Could you contend

With a silver moon,

When the dawn breaks

At daylight?

Could you see,

The stars so bright,

Through a yellow sun,

At midnight?

Alas, whom among us,

Would then wish to croon,

Amidst so much confusion,

A tune to the moon?

So, when you gaze

Upon the moon at noon,

Say a silent pray,

Not to make it soon!
