Here Comes The Sun
The past few weeks were pretty much devoid of sunshine. The sun appeared so infrequently, I can’t even remember if it popped through the clouds at all. I suppose it did, but I can’t be certain. We all know how important the sun is to our health and well being. That dearth of sunlight was not a friend to good mental health either.
Happily, the sun seems to have resumed it’s proper place and function in the universe. Suddenly, smiles are more easily forthcoming. Sunshine, sunlight and warmth of the sun are a blessing. I found a couple of sweet poems about the sun I thought I’d share.
I told the Sun that I was glad,
I'm sure I don't know why;
Somehow the pleasant way he had
Of shining in the sky,
Just put a notion in my head
That wouldn't it be fun
If, walking on the hill, I said
"I'm happy" to the Sun. John Drinkwater
I’ll tell you how the Sun rose –
A Ribbon at a time –
The Steeples swam in Amethyst –
The news, like Squirrels, ran –
The Hills untied their Bonnets –
The Bobolinks – begun –
Then I said softly to myself –
‘That must have been the Sun!’ Emily Dickinson
