Warm Friend

    Warm Friend

    Morning dampness fades away
    before the warmth of your glow
    as you chase away the dark.
    Rising mists shrink back down
    and return to pond and bog
    as you rise.
    Damsel fly and dragon fly take wing
    to skip along thermal winds
    as you lift warming air.
    Heat of day brightens the landscape
    bending and waving the air
    as you bake the earth in your heat.
    My arms burn red and my brow spills sweat
    as your bright yellow orb begins its descent.
    Warm blankets of wind surround and swirl about me
    as your globe touches the western horizon.
    Evening coolness winds its way
    over the darkening landscape
    as you descend into darkness
    leaving us anxious for your return
    in the opposite sky
    to begin for us
    a new warm day.

    got to love the sun. great poem

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
