|Hi Elle - on hiatus ,
I love this poem. It is a great ode to the relationship between the Earth and the moon, and it is filled with some amazing personification. This mirrors Greek mythology both in terms of relationship and the idea of personification where Gaea, the goddess personification of the Earth, is the grandmother of Selene, the goddess personification of the Moon.
The opening stanza is a great description of the moon and its orbit around the Earth. I particularly liked the idea of the moon having skin.
The idea of the barren moon, which truly shows it age, being envious of Earth's beauty is a nice touch and it really enhances the personification in your poem. This contrast between the Earth and Moon continues into the third stanza, where the Moon desires to feel the oceans and rainfall.
I like the closing stanza where the Moon suddenly rethinks its situation. This is a nice turn within the poem.
