The Sun's Secret - Poem by Modupeola Williams

The sun swims in the lake by my house
It's a secret, so don't you tell
Mommy and Daddy don't believe
But it's a truth I know so well

In the evening he dips his toes
A little just to test
Then slowly but surely jumps all in
To play a bit before he rests

Beneath the water he dances
Oh, he thinks no eye can see,
But the golden rays that break the surface
Are known, to little 'ol me

He swims all spring, summer and fall
And in winter he skates across
A nice little change of routine
When snow covers the grass and moss

You can tell that he gets blue
For winter skies are sometimes gray
But he turns jolly once again
In spring he's merry and gay

I once saw him kiss the flowing lake
He blushed all the while
The sky turned the hottest pink
I laughed, it made me smile

The sun swims in the lake by my house
it's a secret, so don't you tell
Just between the two of us,
It's a truth I know so well.
