In the natural world we have day and night. The night is dark but we have the light of the moon and stars. The day is bright but clouds and bad weather can make it dark. There are different stages of light at the beginning and end of the day such as dawn, dusk and twilight. At this time of year in my part of the world we are entering into winter. The days are shorter, and darkness comes quicker and lasts longer. But we have Christmas, Diwali, Hannukkah and other religious festivals which bring lights of candles, coloured electric lights and fireworks. Somewhere else in the world people are enjoying the long bright days of summer. Sometimes we feel like everything is dark and gloomy in our lives but if we look for it we can find find some light somewhere or a way to make things brighter.
I’m Not Afraid of the Dark Oh, I’m not afraid of the darkness. I don’t mind an absence of light. I can’t say I’m scared of the sunset or things that go “bump” in the night. I’ve never been frightened of monsters or tentacles under my bed. Not skeletons, witches or goblins or creatures come back from the dead. I’m not at all worried of werewolves, or even a vampire’s bite. I’m simply not scared of the darkness, except when you turn off the light. — Kenn Nesbitt https://www.poetry4kids.com/poems/im-not-afraid-of-the-dark/
The Tale of the Sun and the Moon The sun was in his bathing suit, the moon in her pajamas. They played all day until the two were called in by their mamas. The sun went home and climbed in bed, his mama sang a tune, and soon the sun was fast asleep and dreaming of the moon. The moon decided not to go; instead she stayed outside. She danced and played and laughed and sang and stayed awake all night. When morning came the sun arose and went outside to play, but could not find his friend the moon, who slept inside all day. So now these two are best of friends, apart in dark and light. The sun turns in at evenfall — the moon stays out all night. The shining moon sees no sunlight, the sun sees no moonbeams, but when they each are fast asleep they’re in each other’s dreams. — Kenn Nesbitt https://www.poetry4kids.com/poems/the-tale-of-the-sun-and-the-moon/
Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.J.K.Rowling, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
