GOD'S SUN AND MOON.

The dawn of day brings out the sun,
Bringing warmth and light and fun.
Rosy fingers creep over the sea, or hill,
Bringing beauty that makes the heart thrill.
It heralds the time for birds to trill,
So that their silvery notes the air doth fill.
Buds on bushes, trees and flowers,
Open their faces to the warmth and to perfume the daylight hours.
People out of houses spill, some to work, some to play,
Some to school, the shops, safari parks, the seaside, so many ways to fill a day.
Overhead it calls to lunch...
Outdoor workers - a very hungry bunch!
A few more hours and it sinks in the west,
Its work is done, time to rest!
Birds are singing a lullaby, as rosy glows give way to dusk...

One by one the stars do peep out,
"Come on, time to play!"  Each twinkle SEEMS to shout!
Then slowly... rising on the air...
The moon, a silvery form so fair.
At times it takes a crescent shape,
At others, an orb - its beauty leaving artists agape!
In wintertime, when frost abounds,
Shimmering rings its shape surrounds.
At Harvest Time, it has a golden sheen,
The rest of the year it is silver and pristine.
The world has a beauty not seen in the day...
And by its light, creatures hunt, or play.
The sea looks like molten silver by the moon's light,
Soon it will be time for the moon to slip from sight!
It tucks the stars away to sleep and nods its head to the sun to rise...
