CHILDREN IN THE SKY
There is a full moon,
distant in the sky, tonight,
Grey planets are planted
on an aging white face.
Children, living & dead,
love the moon with small hearts.
Those in heaven already take gold thread,
drop the moon down for us all to see;
Those alive with us, look out their
bedroom windows, tonight, & smile-
Then prayers, then sleep.
