The enigmatic super moon!

Back, something like four billion years ago, a young earth was struck by a large object. The result was a piece of the earth was gouged out, and in doing so, caused the earth's spin and tilt. That piece became our moon. Today it creates the tides and is a prominent feature in the sky above our heads.

On this date, the moon was very close to the earth and was thus said to be a 'super' moon. And, it won't get this close to us again until the year 2034. My simple poem from my even more simple mind, commemorated the occasion.
