Bring me the sunset in a cup
to warm my hands and fill my eyes
with beautiful colors.
Let its sweet glow swirl
for the night as I sleep.
Let me drink it in the morning
so that I will be warm
and glow myself,
knowing that later
I will have once more
a cup filled with the evening's sunset.

The author's comments:
In creative writing we had to create our own poem from the first line of Emily Dickenson's "Bring Me the Sunset in a Cup". This is mine.
