Eclipsing the moon

the fat planet earth
got in front of the sun
until daylight turned dark
forever and a day
the earthlings looked up
saw the full moon
turning dark
turning red with earthlight
the earthlings said
the moon is going dark
but seen from the moon
the sun went dark
and slowly came back
all the earthlings could see
was a full mound again
round bright and happy
beautiful as it should be
beautiful as she is
