The Sun Rises on It’s Own

from “A Sparrow’s Heart: Poems for Children of All Ages,” by Rick Visser

The Sun Rises on It’s Own

The sun rises on its own,
water falls forever down,
so it is that time submits,
and life is lived in me.

Travel once and travel twice,
travel everyday, but never
will the sparrow’s heart
reach its destiny

unless you sing and sing
your song, sing it on your knees,
sing it till the apple falls
and treasure what it frees.
