Sun and Earth

Sunshine mists away the dew, 
brightens the path; I think of you.
Wish you were here, along with me, 
to contemplate the fading tree.
 
A year gone by of tasks undone
Swept clean, unheeded, by the sun,
He wheels in his appointed way
To mark the start and end of day.
 
The sun arises, oversees
The bustle of our struggle and toil
While, effortless, he works to please
The earth, the wind, the sea, the soil,
 
Amused at all our scrabbling rage
Whereby we steal each other’s good,
While sun and earth, with wisdom sage, 
Provide us all we need for food.
