The sun wants to play!

the weather's been funny the past few days here in Singapore. You never know when the sunny day decides to be all teary...Today was one such day and my lil boy was feeling upset that it rained...so i made up this poem for him and we had some fun! Sharing our lil moment together...This suited the prompt at writer's too...
*********************************************************************
The sun wants to play!!



Over the horizon and far away
The sun woke up to a new day
Should I hide behind a cloud today?
Should I be bright and stay?

So he hopped behind a cloud, peeking in and out
Making the weather man shake his head and shout
It’s going to be bright...umm wet....may be sunny,
This sure wasn't good. This sure wasn’t funny!

Waiting for the sun to make up his mind,
Was not easy, they were beginning to find
Our umbrellas or our shades, what do you think?
What a mess, it tickled our sun really pink

Everybody grumbled, what a day
The children didn’t know where to play
The beach or the park, in or out
The sun was acting strange, no doubt…

No body ever thought the sun
Could be having some fun
Over the horizon and far away
The sun sure had a great day

***********************************************************
This was more of a spontaneous oubtburst from me to keep S in good humor.

It is sooo sweet!:) Tell me the lil one loved it??:) You should consider having it published in a poetry book for the tiny tots!:) I can actually imagine them acting it out with cute cut out props of the naughty sun and the clouds..:)

I've always loved the idea of the sun playing moody. In fact, in my storyline for chap 4 of muffet, had something similar planned..:) Great minds think alike?
