Chapter 8: The Moon: the Distant View

Difficulty Level: At Grade Created by: CK-12

The Moon's the North Wind's cookie

He bites it, day by day

Until there's but a rim of scraps

That crumble all away.

The South Wind is the baker

He kneads clouds in his den,

And bakes a crisp new moon that ...

greedy…. North.... Wind ….eats….again!

---“What the Little Girl Said"
Vachel (Nicholas) Lindsay, 1879-1931.

Full Moon

A Full Moon.
