The Sun Shines Bright Through Azure Skies - Poem by David Mitchell

The sun shines bright through azure skies,
Perpetually shedding his rays,
Even when into the dark he hies, —
All nights at length turn into days.

The moon, when day turns into night,
Reflects the sun with silver rays,
Stealing his incandescent light,
Transforming it to twilight haze.

    This is a very lovely poem David, if flows so well, I think you need to respell 'hies' to 'hides', which I think it's supposed to be as it sort of spoils the reading. Sincerely Ernestine Northover (Report) Reply
