You pull our oceans with your gravity and remind us of the time of day.
You mark the months and remind us of our relative insignificance in relation to time and space. This makes us feel humble.
We’ve been able to travel to you and step on your surface. This makes us feel superhuman.
You provide comfort because our families see you too, even if they are far away. Sometimes we see you so clearly we can pick out the craters on your unearthly face; other times you glow so brightly with golden hues there are barely any words for your beauty.
For all these reasons and more, you required a room, O Moon.
