Highlights of Kansas City ~ Poems about the Places We Love

  HIGH LIGHTS  of  KANSAS CITY  

 

Illustrated Poems about the
Places We Love

 

Kansas City's Country Club Plaza

PLAZA SUNSET

 
Some write of the sunbeams that come in the morning,
Breaking the night and dispelling the gloom;
While dew drops, like jewels each petal adorning,
Shimmer and glisten their farewell too soon.

Some write of the sunbeams that come at the noontide,
Giving their life to earth's dwellers below;
Though storm clouds may gather and for a time hide
Their streaming abundance of warmth and red glow.

But I write of the sunbeams that linger at evening,
Painting with rose hues the horizon afar,
Spreading effulgence with lavish bequeathing
Of all of their glory to night's distant star.

--Robert C. Barnett.
