Lollipop Anthology : Solar eclipse
Granny said it's solar eclipse
So I should not eat my favourite chips.
"Today",she said, "A giant snake will eat the sun"
Her anxious face isn't making any fun.
"Snake would gulp the sun?"
Thoughts raced in the lobes of my mind
Darkness in the air made me blind
Within an hour, the sun left the sky
The snake ate the sun, don't know why!!
My mind didn't stop thinking
"So we can never see the sun winking?"
"How did the snake reach the sun?"
"It surely must be bigger than the hot fire gun!"
"Why didn't the sun burn the snake down?"
My endless doubts gave mommy's face a wrinkled frown.
The sun came back after a few hours.
"Is he now the upshot of snake's puke showers?"
Who'd refine my disarrayed notions?
Vexed, I opened my science book to finish the undone portions.
BOOM! Science explained Solar eclipse!
Moon moves between Earth and the sun during its orbit.
Darkness is the sun's shadow
Neither is it menacing not a cause of sorrow.
Take a few measures and enjoy the magic
Fake stories vote down the logic
I'm happy that there's no giant snake in the sky
I'll not be eaten by it the day when I fly high.
