Magical Is The Sunlight Poem by * Sunprincess *

Magical Is The Sunlight



magical is the sunlight, each and every day
showing us things of beauty and wonder
like the prettiest blue sky ever, so lovely,
after a stormy night of lightning and thunder
like a small bunny hopping across a green lawn
following a yellow butterfly with the gentle breeze
and prancing into a forest of evergreen, a new fawn
like going scuba diving, it's a joy, it's a delight,
to see a school of striped golden fish in the Caribbean
or even the brightly shining stars on a clear night
seeing any of these is magical and brings a smile
totally filling my heart with happiness :)

magical is the sunlight showing us truth and reality
like leaving animals homeless, oh it's terribly lame
seeing huge swathes of land, now treeless,
oh my, can someone tell me where lies the blame?
like seeing miles of ocean contaminated with oil
as fish are floating lifeless, for the world to see
and solid waste disposal sites contaminating the soil
or in major cities smog is polluting the air
as birds drop dead from the sky, in air once fresh as spring
can someone tell me, does anyone care?
and when I see these things my heart is saddened
to see our home polluted gives me tears!

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
dear readers, environmental pollution is a real concern
air pollution in large cities is a huge problem

Your two-stanza poem shows the bitter reality of the planet: it's half a paradise garden, sweet, abundant, inviting, and. probably the only such planet in the Galaxy, the other half is a degraded, abused, neglected dump yard. It's shocking how clearly a 25-30 line poem can express both the beauty and ugliness of our common home, and yet millions of people who could make a change ignore the reality. Imagine our great-grandchildren writing a poem like this in the early 22nd century: What will the percentage of Garden Space and Dump Yard Space for them? And how will they think of us? I agree with John Westlake's comment below!
