One day The Earth found herself lonely
She asked the Sky To be her companion.
The Sky simply laughed
And said “Why would I stay with you When I’m so in love with being free?”
And so the Earth remained cold
And she was bare and lonely.
Despite her cold
And despite her bareness
The Ocean was watching from afar
And thought the Earth was beautiful.
The Ocean came to her And offered company
Confessed his infatuation With the Earth.
And the Earth saw His tidal wave emotions
And the Earth saw
The constant changing nature
Of the Ocean, Much like her own.
And so she pulled the Ocean close;
They became one.
The Sky watched from above
For a very long time.
The Sky found himself lonely
He asked the Earth To be his companion.
She did not respond,
For she was too distracted
By the loving Ocean.
And so the Sky began to cry,
But his tears did not bring
To the Earth or the Ocean Grief.
Instead The Sky’s tears
Brought strength to the Ocean
And life To the once bare, cold, lonely Earth.
