The Warm Welcome

Light the Dark

By Mrs. WPublished about a year ago 1 min read

The summer sun has yet to shine.

I eagerly anticipate

The way it calms my fickle mind

And sets my worries straight.

Great ball of fire, please come and stay;

Please do not take away your light.

Your warmth helps me to face the day,

And the shadows arrive at night.

Without you, the darkness takes hold

Of my every thought and deed.

Let your heat caress my tired soul.

Come quickly, summer sun, indeed.
