An Ode to the Sun (for Audra)

Does the sun know how brightly He shines?
Does He see the light of other stars,
And wish that He were in their signs
or a passenger in their cars?

Does He see the light of the moon
and wish that He could be so heavenly?
Does He pray for His midnight to be noon,
and to be seen as preciously?

Does the Sun above see the planets about Him
And wish to be as bright as they?
Does He think they would shine without Him
That He is not the their light of day?

Does the sun know the warmth of His light
Or the joy He spreads each morn?
Does He know His shine is bright
and with Him each day is born?
