The Early Morning

The moon on the one hand, the dawn on the other:
The moon is my sister, the dawn is my brother.
The moon on my left and the dawn on my right.
My brother, good morning: my sister, good night.

by Charles Baudelaire

(The Early Morning by Hilaire Belloc.) **Light verse. An entertaining read.
I love those mornings when the sun has just arisen but yet the moon is still able to be vaguely seen off to the side. This is such a great little poem on the wonderful ways of the universe.
One on the left, One on the right, Lips in between, Suck all night.
