This poem was written for my friend Leanne, who wanted me to write “something uplifting”.
As the sun rises, so does it shine
Tracing along an invisible line
After endless chills, for summer you pine
The warmth above sure feels fine
This radiant day, to you, is a sign
The fragrant air like heady wine
Dance and play, on land or in brine
For now we’re free of winter’s tine
It’s time for you to shine, shine, shine!
