Sunrise
by Lucy, age 12, England

Oh summer days,
And summer nights,
Do not compare,
To my delights.
No field of red,
With grass so long,
Makes me feel,
Like I belong.
So look above,
When the day is new,
At all those loaded,
Piles of dew.
And I'll look down,
Look down at you,
Because flying high,
Is what I do.
