Mouse and Moonbeam

A mouse and a moonbeam,

Have you ever seen?

How they dance the same way;

In them the same gleam.

 

For the mouse eats cheese,

Without another thought;

Some people say cheese

Has been moon-wrought.

 

Both are chased by predators,

As we strive to climb

The universe, and the mouse

Is that big lion’s lime.

 

And have you seen

A daylight moon? So far and so few,

As in the day, a mouse hides back;

It has nothing to do.

 

There, the secret of the creatures

Have been told from afar;

One pearly eye, and in the sky,

A mouse that's not a star.

 

A mouse and a moonbeam,

Have you ever seen?

How they dance the same way;

In them the same gleam.

The End
