a lil’ rhyme


The moon shines bright

upon this night

such pretty sight

for us to peep.


The full moon’s light

makes clouds take flight

outshines starlight

comfort we keep.


The moon’s far height

angels’ nightlight

please do not fight

just go to sleep!

    I especially like the last stanza. It would be the perfect response to the child in the poem I posted!
