The Sun's Swan Song


The dark oceans burst into tears,
As the weak darkness grew strong,
The reef cocked its ears,
As the Sun calls for her swan song.

The sunshine gloomed at the sand,
As the sand stared back clueless,
The waves swept up to shore,
To bring the news of the exodus.

The demons had risen from their caves,
Of clouds and grey-tinted fog,
Shooting arrows of darkness,
At the Earth's helpless flock.

The Sun's swan song has ended,
Earth have lost,
It has been rented,
Out and the darkness falls.

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
