I saw dawn creep across the sky,
And all the gulls go flying by.

I saw the sea put on its dress
Of blue midsummer loveliness,

And heard the trees begin to stir
Green arms of pine and juniper.
I heard the wind call out and say:
‘Get up, my dear, it is today!’

If sunlight fell like snowflakes,
gleaming yellow and so bright,
we could build a sunman,
we could have a sunball fight,
we could watch the sunflakes
drifting in the sky.
We could go sleighing
in the middle of July
through sundrifts and sunbanks,
we could ride a sunmobile,
and we could touch sunflakes—
I wonder how they’d feel.
