The trees knew the Moon before
our ancestors lived in them
they had long ago fallen in love
with its changing silver light
even though it didn’t nourish them
perhaps even because of it.
They whispered to us
when we came around
and we fell in love, too.

High as trees could reach
the moon was too far away.
But even that far back
we knew it was not too far
for us
eventually

We promised
when some day we went
we would bring it back
to them.
