I do not come and go by choice, my destiny lies elsewhere
I rise and set as Nature chose, with diligence and care.
Some days my golden glow is dulled by cloudy skies but yet
I always rise in the east and settle in the west.
My shining light brings life to all and on those sunny days
When warmth is felt on human skin, the power of my rays
Will always make the flowers bloom, the bird to build their nest
Bring smiles to all as spirits lift in joy and happiness.
For World Poetry Day on a very sunny & warm 21 March 2014
