Oh Moon, you are bright and cool

For a day or two

Then you become smaller by the day

But you take it lightly and smile

Before plunging the earth in darkness

Only to resurrect yourself

And in a day or two you appear

With a baby smile and you become bigger

Bigger and brighter till we on earth say

“Its full moon bright and cool!”

It has been so for centuries

And it will be so forever

Your life itself is a lesson

Or an example of ups and downs

How come you are always clean

I used to wonder

How on earth do you wash yourself

When it is bone dry over there?

But now the puzzle is over

Chandrayan-I has solved it

Now that it has detected water on your surface.
