   For a moment I held the sun.

It seemed rather heavy for its size,

but I liked it still.

For a moment I held the moon

It was cold and hard, so

I put it back.

For a moment I held the star.

I thought I held it long enough,

so I reached up to put it back.

I forgot where it went, so

I gave it to the sun.

For a moment I held the earth.

It didn't want just one person holding it.

So I passed it around.
