If I could catch a sunbeam
I’d keep it in a jar
and save it for the times
when cloudy skies or rain would fall
and threaten to spoil my plans that day.
I’d open up the jar
and watch my sunbeam spread its warmth,
its golden rays and magical waves sweep across the sky
and everyone would wonder,
“From where did the sunshine come”?
I would then reply, “It’s just a bit of magic
I kept in a jar.” 🙂
