The Man On The Moon

                    The Man On The Moon
As children we are told that the moon has a face on it,
With our childlike eyes we see a friend - the man on the
Moon. There he sits in the sky looking down on us,
With his friendly smile, loved by children everywhere.

There is a misconception that there really is an actual man
Up there, but there are others who say that he is made of 
Green cheese, but we also find this hard to swallow. Yes, the
Moon is said to make people go mad by looking

At it too long, and lovers would not be romantic without
It. Even the witches are supposed to fly accross the 
Face of the moon flying on their broomsticks during
Halloween. Yes, the moon has many sides to it: some 

Good and some evil, but the prettiest sight is when
The moon is at it's fullest, showing that wonderful 
Round face of the man on the moon smiling down at you.

    John, Your version of the moon made him a mysterious and interesting character. Very well done :) Thank you for commenting on "The Moon Only Cries"

    Hi Karen, I thought you would like to compare the two poems, we both used a different approach and I find comparisons are a good thing to see, mine was a generalisation of how we see the moon, and yours was like a sympathetic look at the sad side of the moon being overshadowed by the Sun. thanks for being a follower of mine, nice comment. John
