Sunshine

hand
(c) June Perkins

Swaddle me in sunshine

sang the fairy child.

Weave me into forest,

tell me you have smiled.

Dance me tales of blossoms.

Look carefully for my signs.

 

Swaddle me in sunshine,

Now climb the magic vines.

Breathe me into spring time.

Search for the unseen.

 

Swaddle me in sunshine.

Cover trees in green

Swaddle me in sunshine,

when winter’s on her way.

Find for me some shelter

to keep the cold at bay.

June Perkins
