Today I cannot find the sun,
It's not on time, so things aren't fun.
I want to run and skip and play,
But I don't think I can today.

It's dark and wet and gloomy too,
I'm really truly feeling blue.
I only know one thing to try'
To build a ladder in the sky.

If it stretches high enough,
We'll find the sun! It won't be tough.
There's only one problem I'll bring forth,
I've been building since January; it's July fourth!

The sun is really far away,
And now it's back out anyway.

The author's comments:
Hey, I'm Brooke.
My favorite poet is Shel Silvertein.
His work often inspires mine, but I try to put my own spin on it.
I may not be exactly a child, but I enjoy writing children's poetry.
I hope you enjoy reading what I enjoy writing!<3
