The Earth’s One-Sided Love Story

That day the Sun was in a hurry He had a date on the other side of the globe Spreading light, giving insights, brightening life  People were warming up to Sun's plans, his love life The Sky saw the Sun showering moon his light   He warned the Earth to look beyond the horizon  The Earth revolved and came in the way of the Sun She eclipsed the moon to prove her might  Moon ran after the Sun to save her engagement   She shielded her Sun, thwarting Earth by blocking light The Moon showed earthling her diamond ring An ominous breeze blew, Sky thundered, the earth moved Sun stood its ground, Earth's world went dark every evening  She thought she was the only one thriving with life The Sun was her star, the centre of her life Moon sympathized, promised to brighten Earth all night   Penmancy gets a small share of every purchase you make through these links, and every little helps us continue bringing you the reads you love!
