The poem was an imagination by the poet of his trip to the moon. The writer was a student appearing for his exams. He had already taken exams in four subjects. Now he is to study for and write the science examination, going to be held the very next day.

The writer was sitting alone in his house. He was studying the structure of a mouse. Suddenly the lights went out. Then he heard a loud burst. He thought that someone was there outside. So he went out, full of fright. There he saw a big rocket. An astronaut was there inside the rocket. He invited the writer on a flight to the moon. The writer readily agreed. He went in and sat by his side.

The writer along with the astronaut reached the moon by afternoon. But they could not walk on the ground of the moon as the gravitational force of the moon is much less than that of the moon. So they jumped around. It was a lot of fun to the writer. The writer along with the astronaut started their return journey.

The writer reached home before the setting sun. To his surprise and also to the surprise of his parents, the writer fared his science test very well. But no one knew the secret as to how his science test had gone very well. The secret still dwelled inside the writer.


The Moon makes Earth a more livable planet by moderating our home planet’s wobble on its axis, leading to a relatively stable climate. It also causes tides, creating a rhythm that has guided humans for thousands of years.
