There once was a forest upon the Moon
that flourished for a while
but vanished too soon;
a realm of trees upon her face,
a woodland there in outer space.
And all the creatures of the trees
lived happily, life was a breeze;
swinging through the branches high
the monkeys laughed, and then did cry;
for, when the forest realm could not rebirth,
they all fell, back down to Earth.
