Start of Story

The Moon-Man sent his stars to bed,
And turned a pitying eye
To where the Sun-Man sailed alone,
Across the eastern sky._



"Poor thing!" he said. "How sad to have
No children round your knee.
A thousand thousand stars are mine
How lonely you must be!"



The Sun-Man laughed a jolly laugh.
He pointed far below,
To where the shining busy earth
Swung golden in his glow.



"A million million babes are mine,"
He said, "on yonder earth;
My sunbeams wrap them all the day,
To me they owe their birth.



"A million million babes smile up
From dawn till day is done.
And when I say my last good-night
I kiss them every one."
