WHO’S IN THE MOON?

Everyone thinks there’s a man in the moon
I know there’s really a woman in there.
As the stars come out, twinkling in nights sky,
She winks at me with her special flair.

But if you’re in doubt lend me your ear…

Look up at the moon,
whose shape does she share?

Look up at the moon,
Whose curves follow hers?

Look up at the moon,
When can you see her?

Is she out all day?
Is she out all night?

Who else works these hours,
Morning, noon, and night?

For us down on earth,
For us her history,
Moons revealing self
Masks no mystery.

She’s, she! Through and through
From her shape, her curves, her round-the-moon shifts,
Only one share’s Moon’s form
Woman with her gifts!
