The Last Sunset - Poem by Natalie Clyne

The sand gets trapped between my body, as I roll about on the beach,
But that is the least of my delights.
The eyes of everybody look to the magical rainbow,
Like if they were in some kind of trance.

The light shimmers across the ocean,
Delicately warming the surface and all that belongs to it.
I try to catch a glimpse of the last sun set, that will disappear forever!

The sun goes down, life is no more,
People stop and stare, waiting hopefully for the sun to show it’s light once more.
The Earth begins to die and the darkness eats away at everybody,
They wish they had taken more notice of the sun, but it was too late!
