First, Majesty made sun and moon
Equal luminaries, a sky to crown,
Legend says Majesty spoke with the moon
Who said no two could wear one crown,
Majesty, some say, decreased the moon,
The sun, it seemed, was left to wear the crown,
Majesty, tales say, ministered to the moon
By giving her each and every shining star
Saying one day we’d see the parity of moon,
Today, we know the sun is but our closest star,
And all the stars were given to the moon.

Happy International Women’s Day to all – of every gender for whom this day matters.
