A poem describing the daily life of the sun, and how it wakes the animals, feeds the plants, paints the earth in colour, and makes things warm.

When darkened sky is almost done

The sun decides to have some fun

It rises and decides to run 

And paint the sky in red.


It gazes at the Earth below

Some places sand, some places snow

It spreads around its brilliant glow

And wakes the life from bed.


As creatures stir, from birds to ants

It gives them all a friendly glance

Then turns its gaze toward the plants

To make sure they are fed.


The sun has many things to do

Before its busy day is through

It wants to see the colour blue

So make it so, it said.


And with the sun's booming command

the blue was spread across the land

Water and sky painted by hand,

Until, with blue, they bled.


It wants to see the colour green

But on this Earth, it is not seen, 

So down it comes, a brilliant screen

And across the land it spread.


It now begins to swell with pride

And raises higher in the sky

And temperatures begin to rise

And so, the coldness fled.


And now, the sun is done its chores

And so it runs, and runs some more

Much faster then it did before

Across the sky it sped.


And when it sees the other side

The creatures find a place to hide

They know the light will soon subside

When the sunset lies ahead.


So when the day is almost through,

And the sun runs out of things to do,

It sinks below the sky so blue, 

And rests its weary head.
