A Golden Sphere - Poem by Ernestine Northover

A golden sphere is lifting up so slowly in the east,
The eye is looking towards it, and seeing such a feast,
Blazing with bands of colour, and giving a wondrous heat,
A view that to each observer, is something so complete.

The sphere goes on its journey, and starts slowly rising,
In different coloured guises, it begins such advertising,
Above the trees and fields, of this silent waiting land,
With a spectacle so splendid, so magnificent and grand.

A whole range of hues are seen, within this fiery glow,
Changing as the hours pass by, it then starts sinking low,
And if seen in splendid glory, is a wonderful imposing sight,
Out to the west, where it disappears into our moonlit night.

    There is nothing like watching a sunrise or for that matter, a sunset! ...

    I noticed a typo in the last line. I believe 'is' should be 'it'? ...

    Sunrise, sunset - how quickly the days are gone. Sad, yet hopeful that that old sun will continue his journey. (Report) Reply

    Very vivid Ernestine. I particularly like the flow of the rhyme in the first two lines of the second verse. For some reason I found them most relaxing. You're onto something here. Mood poetry! (Report) Reply
