Give us the Moon

New ‚loon or full ‚loon
Which is most fun?
It canft be the former
Since thatfs when therefs none!

Or if itfs a crescent
A croissant of light
Donft eat it for breakfast
Enjoy it at night!

And when the ‚loonfs convex
Give us the ‚loon!
I only say that when itfs
Gibbous the ‚loon!

If a forest of candles
Could cover its face
The blaze would be splendid
Though waxing apace!

My dear friend the ‚loon
Whether waxing or waning
Whatever your phase is
I wonft be complaining!
