From a comment

I was asked to post a comment I made
from another blog. Jamie Dedes its been tweaked.


A female chauvinist
you call yourself
for you see things
of love, as woman

A strong sailing ship,
a brand new car
or a rainbow after
a sweet summer rain

Then what would I be
for only a woman could
inspire so much love
like the crescent moon

The man in the moon
is only there because
she holds him
dear to her heart

Ellis that is beautiful!

I think of the man on the moon as "man" but I think of the moon as a woman. Now why is that?? :-)

I love the last stanza - it's beautiful...the man in the moon is not alone and I'm glad. I used to worry about him up there by himself.

I like this. Particularly, the last "man in the moon."
I always thought it was a little odd to think of a man in the moon rather than the ancient identification of woman with the moon. My best.
