I give a firm place to stand,
said the earth, as arms rose from the land,
holding a rock for all to see.
I give the bluest blue, said the sky,
and bend light to trick the eye.
Across the horizon, a rainbow danced.
The stars sparkled in reply
as the Milky Way passed by...
there was nothing more they had to say.
It is warmth that I give
and the power to live,
said the sun, as she glowed from within.
By comparison, I pale,
said the moon to the whale,
and 'round he spun, pulling the sea to his chin.
