There was silence across the land People had been forced indoors By the fear of living in the dark On a thick black sky Appeared multitudinous tiny stars They seemed to be helpless Defeated by the seemingly undefeatable darkness Then from a shadowed horizon far east Ascended an angel, the moon Her garment pure white as snow She rose up very slowly and confidently And fought bravely against darkness Until he was reduced to ruins And suddenly all over the place Started a hullabaloo of cheerful fowls The death of silence across the land Declared her victorious The moon an artist; painted the sky in white Carved the world into casted shadows Her victory melted fear away in the dying night And made the world look romantic instead
