Father Comforts Tearful Nora, 6

I think you're right, Nora.
There must be a Man in the Moon
and a Man in the Sun  

changing light bulbs all day long.
They are shy gentlemen  
the garden gnome said yesterday.

A smile from you, I'm sure, 
would make them blush.
The Man in the Moon

might hide behind a cloud
and the Man in the Sun
might dive behind a star.

But now and then
both of them would peek to see
if Nora ever smiles again.
