Moon and Seren (Friends of the Owl)

Wrote this silly poem in the style of Edward Lear back in summer, inspired by inworld adventures with my friend Seren and a real-life heatwave!

Moon and Seren
(Friends of the Owl)

I.

Moon and Seren were warm by the sea
On a beach with pebbles and rocks
It wasn’t so funny that the day was sunny
And much too hot to wear socks
Seren frowned up at the blazing sky
Moon whistled a morbid tune
This heatwave is lousy, too hot to sleep
In the morning, at nighttime or noon
At noon
At noon
In the morning, at nighttime or noon

II.

Sun said to Seren, “You’re a bright shining star.
Why frown when the day is hot?
And Moon you reflect me; don’t you reject me
My light is now all that you’ve got”
Both scowled at Sun, and decided to run
To the shade where a tall tree grows
But a man was there, in the only chair
Sitting naked without any clothes
His clothes
His clothes
Sitting naked without any clothes

III.

“Mister please consider that people will snigger
When they see you all in the buff”
So the man fled in fear, as the two girls came near
And forgot to take all of his stuff
Moon took the chair in the shady air
While Seren tried to climb up the tree
They laughed at the man who forgot his fan
Then later they both had some tea
Some tea
Some tea
Then later they both had some tea
