What is the Sun? by Wes Magee


the Sun is an orange dinghy

sailing across a calm sea

it is a gold coin

dropped down a drain in Heaven

the Sun is a yellow beach ball

kicked high into the summer sky

it is a red thumb-print

on a sheet of pale blue paper

the Sun is a milk bottle’s gold top

floating in a puddle

maggy and milly and molly and may


maggy and milly and molly and may


went down to the beach(to play one day)


and maggie discovered a shell that sang


so sweetly she couldn't remember her troubles,


and milly befriended a stranded star


whose rays five languid fingers were;


and molly was chased by a horrible thing


which raced sideways while blowing bubbles:


and may came home with a smooth round stone


as small as a world and as large as alone.


For whatever we lose(like a you or a me)


its always ourselves we find in the sea

  1. Hi Merrybeau
    I love your blog because it is very interesting and has lots of posts. You also have lovely pics and really interesting posts. Thankyou for visiting our class blog.
    from Olivia

  2. Thank you Olivia for your positive and encouraging comment.
    We learned how to put in pictures during the Student Blogging Challenge
    when we learned how to use Compfight.
    We love to hear from other class and student bloggers so very far away
    from Ireland.
    As we begin our Summer, you are heading into Winter, though we hear
    even in Winter the weather in Australia is not like Winter in Europe.
    We are fascinated by the time difference too.
    To think that you posted your comment at 3.18 am Irish time,
    when we were all asleep… now six hours later, we are beginning
    our school day.
    Blogging shows us the differences in our lives
    and also the similarities in ourselves as human beings,
    With every good wish
