    Such a sweet and universally accessible poem. It could easily be adapted to children's poetry, by modifying the term *lovers*. Many children and teenagers could find meaning in and connection with the theme of loneliness. Who among us - young and old - hasn't found companionship with our satellite, the Moon? Even in our darkest hours, we can always gaze at the moon. Great poem! (Report) Reply
