She went on vacation,
some place warm, no doubt.
But no one, not even Sunshine herself,
can stay away from here forever.
She brought sparkly toys from her journeys
and shared them with each of us.
We held them in our hands
And laughed that it was better than a tshirt.
We missed you! we cried. She blew us kisses and turned to leave.
Could she, would she play just one game
before she went back to work?
Count to ten.
We counted, skipping 6 but adding 8 twice,
and then ran to the trees and found her.
She can't play games everyday, of course.
She is a busy one.
Well, around these parts,
we shall always hold dear the day Sunshine comes to play.
