Let Glorious Sunlight Fill The Day


Let glorious sunlight fill the day,
Let the ancient God appear.
To command all sadness away,
To banish night and fear.

Bathe the altars of the sun,
In warming golden rays.
Keeping darkness on the run,
And to brighten all our days.

Behold the deity in the sky,
Glorious splendor so divine.
To look at his majesty on high,
The humble human does go blind.

    One should never look directly at the sun as it may damage the eyes, but the metaphorical sun should always be sought after. Great poem Juan. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
