The Moon Walks

The moon walks
In faithfulness.
Month after month
Back to her place
Of closeness
With the sun.
Each time she obscures
Herself in darkness
From the eyes of the world,
Her hidden nature
Is bathed in the light
Of that radiant star.
Though her way
Appears inconstant
To those who live on earth,
From the viewpoint
Of the shining luminary,
A part of her
Reflects his glory.
