The Sun

by Jem Croucher


The sun had its hat on today
as it woke with a smile on its face
and made the decision that today was the day
to make itself known ’round the place

It began as it does in the East
by painting a splash in the sky
some red and some gold and some yellow and blue
as it waved at the night passing by

And then as the people awoke
it climbed up high to the blue
and beamed wide over all that it saw down below
as it shone and sparkled anew

The sun brought a spring and a zest
and the day was a good one for all
so it was with a sadness that the people they waved
a goodbye as it started to fall

In late afternoon the sun moved
as it does to sink in the West
and with a sunset to die for it waved a goodbye
leaving all feeling happy and blessed

  1. I really loved how you gave the Sun a personality! Nicely done. Funny, how the Sun inspires so many to write about it, isn’t it? I’m a fan too. I have a couple on my blog too. Keep’em coming!
