Defense and Attack Games Moon And Morning Stars

( Defense and Attack, Singing and Song, Tag )

This game is played when the sun is shining. One of the players is the moon and takes her place in a large area of shadow such as would be cast by a large tree or a house. As the moon belongs to the night she may not go out into the sunshine.

The other players are morning stars and as they belong to the daylight their place is in the sun. The morning stars dance around in the sunlight venturing occasionally into the shadow where the moon is saying–

“O the Moon and the Morning Stars
O the Moon and the Morning Stars
Who dares to tread–Oh
Within the shadow ”

The moon tries to catch or tag them while they are in the shadow. Any star so caught changes places with the moon.
