“M is for… the Man in the Moon” (poem)

The man in the moon
Played me a tune
He played it to me daily

He played me a tune
On a contra-bassoon
And half a ukelele

    • Thanks Maria! It’s fascinating what different cultures make of the moon, from the religious, to the symbolic, to the psychological (werewolves), to the ridiculous (eg that it’s made of cheese). Great source material for us poet-types! 🙂
