The man on the moon


Notice of absence from Jooles
I disappear for months on end......just my life but I always come back!

The man on the moon

Is always gone to soon

He never says goodbye


With a wink and a smile

He's there all the while

To greet me when bedtime is nigh


When I wake in the morning 

Without any warning

My friend and his smile is gone


The sun's in his place

With a bright happy face

The man disappears with the dawn

  • Comment from author about the poem: Myself and my children love the night sky. One cold snowy night the stars were bright but the moon was hidden. Myself and my daughter were out to get some milk. We were in the shop 10 min and when we came back out the moon was low and beautiful and bright. We started the poem on the way home and completed it around the dining table. We hope you enjoy the poem
