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 Oliver Wendell Holmes

Life is real, life is earnest,
And the shell is not its pen –
“Egg thou art, and egg remainest”
Was not spoken of the hen.

Art is long and Time is fleeting,
