Our earth on its axis keeps turning in space

And as the earth turns we can see the sun’s face.

      The tilt of the earth gives us seasons and light,

      But here is a story to bring you delight.


There are two lovely sisters who live out in space

 And who gaze from above on the whole human race.

       As our world turns around we might hear Lady Sun

       Saying: 'Wake up you sleepers!  Your day has begun!'


Then whilst we’re enjoying the sun’s golden rays

And are making the most of our wonderful day,

       Lady Moon gently smiles on the world that has night

       And she sends down her beams with their soft gentle light.


Lady Sun paints our world with such wonderful hues -

Vibrant yellows and greens, stunning crimsons and blues.

     So we humans smile back at her sweet warming face

      For we all love to know that she’s out there in space.


Lady Moon’s like a queen who arrives in the night

With her servants, the stars, twinkling ever so bright,

     But sometimes the sisters meet up in the sky

     To exchange all their news as they quietly pass by.

Our World Really Looking Story Poems 1

This poem was one of 400 poems chosen by teachers in many schools across West Yorkshire for publication in 2010.  It is out of publication right now, but is in Bradford Libraries.  


TALKING POINT:  Get your children to compare and contrast this poem with my other poem, on the same subject, but written in quite a different way:

Lady Sun and Lady Moon. Which do they prefer and why?
