Stars Given To The Moon (a poem for Women’s Day)


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.

  1. Sounds like the sun and the moon are in perfect alignment.
