[Editor: A poem published in the “Children’s Corner” section of the The Daily Mercury, 30 August 1952.]
At the dawning see the sun rise,
In the evening watch it sink,
When the clouds are tipped with golden,
And some are lined with orange-pink.
As we watch that ball of fire,
Sink beneath the ocean blue,
And the colours slowly fading,
The sky’s alight with purple hue.
Some small clouds are full of yellow,
Others are a brilliant red,
And some of them are fringed with crimson,
As the sun goes off to bed.
