Follow The Moon

Published: October 2009

I followed the moon,
Or did it follow me?
I turned a corner;
It was still there, you see.

I tried to trick it.
In the shadows I hid,
But the moon kept on watching.
That's what it did.

A cloud passed before it.
Now was my chance,
But the stars in the sky
Never could lie.

I walked on through the night.
The moon followed me home,
Or did I follow the moon?
I don't quite know.

I teach second graders about the moon and its phases in our international school. We also study poetry. I think this idea will appeal to young poetry writers who are challenged to come up with poems that relate to their study of the moon. It adds a cheerful spin on the moon in between all of the serious waxings and wanings of the moon that seven year olds are trying to comprehend. Thank you very much. I will enjoy reading this to my students.
