An Ode to the Dappled Sunlight In my Courtyard

I see the sunshine dappled on the floor,
     A bit of warmth and happy rays serene;
Striking a beam now on the bedroom door,
     Light and the Shadows makes one lovely scene.

This glimmering light shimmers throughout the day,
     Moving and slanting as the hours go by;
It is a fascinating gleaming ray,
     Here for a while then fades and then I sigh.

Yet while it lasts I ponder many things,
     Of all the golden memories I hold dear;
Filling me with Hope and Love as it flings,
     Joy, Light, and Shadow—lovely and so clear.
