SUN: Our star, giver of heat and light, as the world turns. Sunshine energy. Catch it if you can. Quick, get helpers, call Theo; reach for the star before it goes down, Securing a place in the sun.
Save it from the deep dark sea, Really dangerous as can be. Keep it safe and shining bright, Delivering our precious light.
The dazzling rays expose Self-luminous splendor; Super old, about 4 billion years. Imagine! Hold that thought for strength and skill in the chase.
Wake the turquoise Thunderbird. He sleeps in a grand old Hershey tree (you know those trees live forever!) Just down Mythology Mountain Where spoken tales of ancestors unfold. People say he knows everything and sees everything. That’s incredibly powerful. If it’s true, he might be able to speak to the sun, Convince him to surrender and stay on Instead of going down. T-Bird likes secrets, so tell him yours, About catching the sun before dark. You and he could work together, Collaborate, cooperate, and conspire... Even have a Hershey to improve clear thinking.
Luck has nothing to do with it; Luck is no substitute for planning. What counts is the courage to continue. Friends matter. Connection makes a difference. Two heads are better, Three are a welcoming crowd, And four are treasured community. You can explain more views, Listen, And find new ideas. Caring, sharing… Even catching the sun. (But be careful! It's still a secret.)
Undeterred by reality. So? That’s fun!
Community can live forever, too, Just like the sun and the Hershey trees, When parents know a story and tell their kids, And the kids grow up and tell it some more…
The Hershey Tree
The way forward Is filled with Hope and dreams. It must be explored and explained. Changing the present Changes the future. Everything is hard before it is easy. It’s not about what it is; It’s about what it can become.
Nature has taught us that the impossible is probable, So catch our falling star And put it in your pocket; Never let it fade away.

“You will come to a place where the streets are not marked. Some windows are lighted, but mostly they're darked. But mostly they're darked. A place you could sprain both your elbow and chin! Do you dare to stay out? Do you dare to go in? How much can you lose? How much can you win?” ― Theodor S. Geisel
