Eclipse (Poem)

Eclipse

Eclipse Poem by Bernette Sherman

Lifted eyes towards the sun

Revealed through parting clouds

It beckons me and calls me forth

And in this morning hour

I long to share its glow and light

Feel its majesty and warmth

For tomorrow is another day

One that ancients feared

The blotting of the sun from view

Uncertainty and possible doom

But as with these trying times

Darkness cannot last

And even if hidden from our view

The light remains strong and true

For though passing shadows

Eclipse what we thought we knew

In the span of eternity

These mere seconds will tick

And the light will shine again
