Loving Sun


Green shafts, columns of soldiers
reaching for the sun
bursting from the cold hard soil
marching one by one
fighting the others in the way
defying gravity
we stand strong together
we live in harmony
in beauty, that is our essence
we wait as time flies by
until the fall when we get the call...
that it is now our time to die
but we do not surrender
our roots live underground
and there we bide our time
while the sun can not be found
knowing, repeating, waiting
knowing the day will come
when ground will thaw
and free us all
to greet the summer fun
our blades will reach again upward
reborn, refreshed, re-spun
and we will repeat our journey
all praise the loving sun.
