Blackness of the Sun

Donald P. Goodman III

Version 1.0,
When buds emerge from twigs and open into leaves and tulip poplars spread their showy petals out for bees to frolic in, and roses loudly shout their colors, and the forest ever gently weaves new greenery with old and shelters under eaves the life which grows and flourishes all round about and winter's desolation puts to desparate rout— 'tis then that man the summer's advent last perceives. So when the sun and moon go dark and black as night and stars are falling from the mighty firmament which shakes and grieves from earth to heaven's highest height and all mankind doth groan, in fear now penitent— 'tis then we know the end is here; the newest day, in which the darkness of the sun will light the way.
