THE ASTRONAUT'S WIFE

As he hastily prepared on the side of the moon,
she stood on top of the earth too,
both were indeed married too soon,
but her passion ebbed true,

she howled his name to the moon over and over,
until coyotes cried in her plight,
and the tide beckoned to her lover,
whose breath romanced the waters at night,

eclipsed the heavens a flashing bath,
the Astronaut's wife-heave does her heart in a row,
as a shooting star guided to earth,
come dawn, he will be home to end her sorrow.
