A Moon Poem Based on an Exercise I Once Did in English 266

Waning, waxing, something or another
But surely made of rock and not green cheese.

Responsible for tides I’ve heard,
The iconic romance of a Jimmy Stewart film.

Solar, lunar eclipses will stop by from time to time –
Which is which I can’t be sure.

It tends to make the nighttime beautiful
While also changing man to wolf.

Perhaps, there might be water in the center,
As if a cosmic Tootsie Pop.

And that is all I know about the moon.


  1. Hey, I came across your blog and it's pretty cool. :)
    I like this poem because it's fun.
    It reminds me of the song from Mulan that goes "mysterious as the dark side of the moon."

  2. I love it! Really dig the Jimmy Stewart reference. What a great film!

  3. Yes, a great Christmas classic, I must say.


You've found your way inside my head and now there's no way out!
