Very Young The Summer Sun Rises - Poem by Gert Strydom

Very young the summer sun rises,
changes the air from grey to blue
when flaming it licks over the horizon
and vivaciousness and hope waits in the new day
as if change will be coming just now
before it appears radiating at noon
and so we walked hand in hand
right through the whole day,
knew the glory of selfless love
as if it’s the first day of a new beginning.
