The Ballad of the Moon


THE BALLAD OF THE MOON

Once upon a time,
A lady
really nice
Who had all she had ever desired.
She got married during a
full moon,
But she felt his life wasn’t as she liked.

She looked at
the blue lake,
From a balcony full of lilies
And the Moon was
there.
Full, shinning more than silver,
Pale like the ice.

The lady
thought it could be very nice
To have a Moon always at her side.
From the
highness,
The Moon was looking down,
In the dark lake, to see her
image.

“Hey you! Moon!” – The lady shouted
“Would you like to come and
take a tea?”
“No thanks, I have an appointment with the sea”.
“Oh! I’d
love to come with you!!
To stay in a sky so blue!!”

“You see
everything on the world
And.. you are so beautiful!”
The Moon looked at
the lady-
“Oh! I’ve seen a lot of things”
“Some are pleasant and others
not”

The voice of the Moon was quiet
“But sometimes I feel
melanconic”.
And the lady, smiling, said
“If you take me with you,
I’ll
never leave you alone”

The Moon thought for a while
And then a pale
ray of light
Enlightened the balcony.
Everything became bright.
The
lady disappeared.

“Now you won’t feel alone anymore”
A new shining
star appeared in the sky
And If you look just a bit far from
The right
side of the Moon.
You’ll see the lady, smiling from the high.
