Popular Sun Poems
by Elizabeth Swados

Summer sounds,
Concrete and heat,
Sneakered feet on tar,
Stepping on a melted candy bar,
Crunch, crunch
Gravel on the street,

Dream Variations
by Langston Hughes

To fling my arms wide
In some place of the sun,
To whirl and to dance
Till the white day is done.
Then rest at cool evening
Beneath a tall tree
While night comes on gently,
Dark like me-
That is my dream!

Sweetest love, I do not go,
For weariness of thee,
Nor in hope the world can show
A fitter love for me;
But since that I
Must die at last, 'tis best
To use myself in jest
Thus by feign'd deaths to die.

Yesternight the sun went hence,

by Wilfred Owen


1 Our brains ache, in the merciless iced east winds that knife us ...
2 Wearied we keep awake because the night is silent ...
3 Low drooping flares confuse our memory of the salient ...
4 Worried by silence, sentries whisper, curious, nervous,
5 But nothing happens.

6 Watching, we hear the mad gusts tugging on the wire.
7 Like twitching agonies of men among its brambles.

A Musical Instrument
by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

What was he doing, the great god Pan,
Down in the reeds by the river?
Spreading ruin and scattering ban,
Splashing and paddling with hoofs of a goat,
And breaking the golden lilies afloat
With the dragon-fly on the river.

He tore out a reed, the great god Pan,
From the deep cool bed of the river:
The limpid water turbidly ran,

and redbird songs we missed
when flowers are back, so fragrant

in budding days of renewal.
Emerging beautiful

Clashing Colors

the clouds were charcoal
with deep azure peeking through
sun and mists clashing

beautiful drama
surprised, eyes turned to the skies
on the path of blooms

ever changing days
what we knew gone suddenly

Scarlet Noon
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Deepest darkest reds
crimson guest in the roses
of the same rich hue.
Flowers and plumed cardinal
interact through scents and song.

Vivid green summer
showers gold on scarlet lane-
forever moments!
Bush concert at my window

Good Morning, Lovely World-Nursery Rhyme
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Hello, says the sun, with his bright, warm smile,
Leap frogs are jumping in the cool, green river,
As red robin flies past singing, for many a mile,
And the cool morning breezes, make me shiver.

Good morning, blue sky, where fluffy clouds flit!
Yellow butterflies will be soaring all the day long,
Around and around this beautiful, green planet,
Where violet birds sing the good morning songs.

Unconditional Love
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

a hot day, white light
lime green leaves and roses gleam
in the starlight phase

scintillating sun
with its fierce glare everywhere
except long shadows

captives of white heat
as sun shows its true colors
