by Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830 - 1894)

If the moon came from heaven
Language: English 
If the moon came from heaven,
  Talking all the way,
What could she have to tell us,
  And what could she say?

"I've seen a hundred pretty things,
  And seen a hundred gay;
But only think: I peep by night
  And do not peep by day!"
