Earth is the center of the universe
For moon and men. In vain might we disperse
To seek out barren worlds beyond our reach.
Better our many blessings to rehearse.
If Luna’s barren rocks reflect so bright
The Solar rays throughout galactic night
More closely yet I treasure Earthly joys
Where only men can live, to view starlight.
So Luna spins: revolving round and round
Our Earth most somewhat like a faithful hound
Which keeps mankind in view. Thus she has done
For aeons past. What wisdom has she found?
She lights the evening with her single eye
And all the deeds of men she might espy
Who think her blind. But Luna sees right well
What mankind does. His deeds she does descry.
