Why the moon stole from the sky

Her fire grew wings upon his heart
and he flew to the center of the sun
feathered in the fingers of her flames

And the moon saw
being here now the
same as love
and how we loved here too
and said as much
while wondering what went true together
And He sang

O  how my heart soars when her soul sings
and I feel the fiery heart of
her being,  Let the fingers of her flames dance upon my skin


and the sea believed what the sky saw
how the sunlit arc revealed
why the moon took the
sun from the sky

First week of poetry class. We're studying 18 poems! Three different centuries, six countries. I adore this poem <3 ok here goes. The first stanza is how the moon whished it could be, that he could enter her heart if she loved him. The moon though is trapped because he doesn't believe she loves him. So, he eclipses the sun because that is as close to her ( the corona? flaring on him during the eclipse?)and looks like her fingers are touching him but only to the sky and the sky explained it all to the sea?

You remind me of Icarus.
Are we running with or away from the sun? Dancing in shadows and playing behind the corners.

All nature knows what we're searching for. Clues only learnt through heart song.

You write the most incredible words.
I miss you when I'm gone X
