(Nightime in the sky. A Star is in the middle of stage. Other Little Stars are in the back. The Sun enters)
Sun: What are you doing here so early? You’re supposed to be sleeping.
Star: I know… but I wanted to talk to you… that’s why I stayed.
Sun: What about?
Star: About the moon… have you ever talked to her?
Sun: No… but I wish I had. I have seen her a few times… but she never stays … I only get to say hello, and she only gets to say good-bye…then she leaves. And sometimes when I wake up… she’s already gone.
Star: Would you like to meet her… I mean… would you like to really talk to her?
Sun: Yes! I really want to meet her… she’s so lovely… so bright… so shiny… so…
Star: Do you want to know something? …. The other day she told me you are very cute.
Sun: Really? Wow! You make me happy!
Star: Tonight when I see her… I’ll tell her you say hi… (in a hurry) Oh, I have to go, my sisters are waiting for me.
Sun: No wait!
(The Star and the Little Stars leave)
Sun: Tell her also… that I love her.
(The Sun is in the middle of stage. He looks sad. A Rooster enters)
Sun: Oh moon… You’re so beautiful… I wish I could see you closer… and touch you… and hug you… and…
Sun: Can you be quiet, please.
Rooster: No… I’m doing my work… just like you do yours.
Sun: You call work… waking people up!
Rooster: At least I do something… because all you do is just stand there and do nothing.
Cloud: (to Rooster) I heard what you said… leave him alone!
Rooster: What are you going to do about it?
Cloud: I could cry… you know… and get you all wet!
Sun: Stop it… please… I’m not in a good mood today.
Cloud: Why? What’s wrong with you?
Rooster: Tell us…maybe we can help you.
Sun: I think I’m in love.
Cloud: Oh… who is the lucky one?
Sun: It’s someone I get to see for only a few seconds every day…. and then she leaves.
Rooster: I know who she is… It’s the moon!
Cloud: (to the Sun) Is she?
Sun: Yes, she is. I could never lie to you.
Rooster: Well… I have good news for you.
Cloud: What is it?
Rooster: Obviously, you don’t know what day is today!
Cloud: Well my birthday is on…
Cloud: What did I say?
Sun: Come on Rooster… what are the news?
Rooster: (to the Sun) Today… my dear friend… you will get to see your beautiful moon.
Rooster: Yes! She’s coming to see you.
Sun: To see … me! How do you know?
Rooster: Today there will be a solar eclipse!
Sun: Oh… I totally forgot about it!
Cloud: A solar eclipse? What’s that?
Rooster: A solar eclipse is when the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth.
Rooster: That means that the Sun and the Moon will have a few minutes to talk.
Cloud: Oh… I see. So?
Rooster: Never mind!
Sun: I’m going to be able to talk to her… and maybe I could even kiss her… my dream will come true!
Cloud: (to the Rooster) He really loves her.
Rooster: (to the Cloud) Yeah, he does. (looking at the sky) It’s getting dark… she’s coming.
Cloud: What should I do?
Rooster: We better leave… they need to be alone.
(The Cloud and the Rooster leave)
Sun: I’m so nervous!
(The Moon enters and stands in front of the Sun)
Moon: (in a soft voice) Hello.
Sun: We finally meet. I wanted so much to talk to you… to be near you.
Moon: Me too.
Moon: Yes! This is incredible… I hope this moment would last forever.
Sun: You’re so beautiful. No wonder why all humans get in love just by looking at you. You inspire the most beautiful songs, and the most profound poems. I love to watch you dance upon the ocean!
Moon: You give life to everything that exists! Right now… I feel your warmth in my face, and I feel that everything is possible. You make me feel so alive!
Sun: I love you!
Moon: So do I! (they hug. The Moon starts to move away from the sun)
Sun: Please, don’t leave me!
Moon: I have to… just remember… we will meet again thousands of times. Time for you and me… is infinite.
(The Moon leaves)
Sun: I’l be waiting for you…always.
