What a neat poem. To me it says several different things. One, that anyone can experience extraordinary pleasure, be it ecstatic passion or dancing or whatever even if they can't fly to the moon. And that in these moments, you want this to never end. However, the man who did make this extraordinary journey, was nevertheless mortal with his feet on the ground, as in the title and came home to 'the rest of us' - the big sleep, when everything did end. Also, the poem may be saying that all pleasure is ultimately the same and is experienced in human, not superhuman terms.
