Grandpa tells a story
As the fire burns at night
Of the love between the moon 
And the sun that burns so bright

Sunlight rules throughout the day
And moonlight through the night
Grandpa with his active mind 
Describes this wondrous sight

No one knows who chases who
Who runs away to hide
But there are times as Grandpa says 
They both stand side by side

It's when the moon catches the sun
And blocks it from the Earth
That moon and sun then hug and kiss
In gentle loving mirth

So now this tale is at an end
Oh Grandpa taught me well
Perhaps when we should meet again
Another tale I'll tell

    This was a very endearing write, both honoring and remembering one who was very close to you. I remember when I was little, looking up at the sky in shock to see the moon in broad daylight... Lol. Guess I thought it was something strictly seen at night...

    Dear Rick, What a charming tale and what a lovely verse! I have written something similar: When The Sun Courted The Moon! Have a look. I think your tale and mine are complimentary. Thank you for your visit!
