Poem: The Sun

The Sun

The sun’s been growing stronger
And now the Summer Solstice is here
The time when we have
The shortest night of the year

For more years than anyone knows
Since mankind first walked the Earth
The sun has been a symbol
Of life and of rebirth

It’s light helps us see danger
It’s warmth keeps frost at bay
Mankind could not survive
If the sun didn’t rise each day

But once the Summer Solstice ends
The Sun will lose its strength
The days will become shorter
While the nights grow in length

The darkness is coming
It’s not very far away
You’ll see it creeping up on you
A little more each day

Soon the Sun wont seem to shine
The world will seem to be
As dark as in the depths of
The deepest, darkest sea

I have a couple of other new poems that I have added to my poetry page recently. I'm afraid most of them aren't the most cheerful of poems though. Nether the less you are welcome to go and take a look at them if you want.

For those new to my blog... There's a link on the sidebar to my poetry page (and the other pages connected to my blog) so feel free to go and take a look, if you want to.

During the dark days, that which the sun shines on, remain... and they offer up its reflection, in scents, taste, sound, and in feel - and it will never be truly dark.
