Mr Sun

Mr. Sun radiate glow abound us
Broke the clouds to shine our day
It gave say to my dawning
It chased the fog and dew away
Illuminated the dwelling which held me
It broke a crack beneath my shade
Search my room and then found me
Fast asleep in bed and facing away
Its laser beam was so determined
Roamed the wall to my bed edge
Leap mid-way upon my back
Directly below my head
Came creeping over my shoulder
Struck me with a straight beam in the eye
I arose blinded by its glory
Shielded by hand I saw light
Mr. Sun coming to say Good Morning
Giving strength and clear vision of life

The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
