Poetry: The sun has burst in the sky

The sun has burst in the sky
by Jen­ny Joseph1Joseph is best known as the author of the poem “Warn­ing” — that’s the “I shall wear pur­ple” piece.
From Select­ed Poems

The sun has burst in the sky
Because I love you
And the riv­er its banks.

The sea laps the great rocks
Because I love you
And takes no heed of the moon drag­ging it away
And say­ing cold­ly ‘Con­stan­cy is not for you.’
The black­bird fills the air
Because I love you
With spring and lawns and shad­ows falling on lawns.

The peo­ple walk in the street and laugh
I love you
And far down the riv­er ships sound their hooters
Crazy with joy because I love you.
