(A hypothetical Poem dedicated to Mythless science Deepak Sarkar, www.kolki.com)
Imagine Earth without moon in orbital path!
Nights are always dark throughout months and years
Sky above displaying billions of bright stars
No new moon or full moon days in calendar
No eclipses, solar or lunar, to cheer or fear!
No harvest moon to celebrate fruits of labour!
Without months World runs by solar year
Moonless Earth is spherical with mass and gravity higher -
Entire landmass is clustered together!
Axis of rotation is not tilted always vertical
Poles and magnetic poles are not apart
Ocean is just one body of water -
Earths faults nonexistent, so is ring of fire!
Seasons change lot more subtler
Mountains and volcanoes very rare
Asteroid Belt not a threat for Earth ever
Solar system one more Planet richer
Sentient beings enjoying mostly heavenly tropical weather -
