Bring me the Sunset

Bring me the sunset in a cup
For me to enjoy on my own.
Bring it in a mug
So it can always stay warm.
Keep it covered with your hand
So that no one else can see.

Bring me the sunset in a cup
Not too long after 5.
Save it for the time
When the whole world will need it.
Hold it tight and don't let go
For its cherished by me.

But mostly, bring it to me
On a dark and gloomy night.
Bring it when I ask
So I shed no tears at night.
Bring it one last time
So I can say good-bye.

*This was just a poem that I wrote using the line "Bring me the sunset in a cup" by Emily Dickinson.

Things do bring us comfort and this poem does too. I liked your vision of the sunset and the way it makes one happy at the sight. We link good memories to bad ones to make the bad ones hurt less. This is a great poem and your muse(Emily Dickinson) is wonderful also! Thanks for the poem, Anthony

Love the concept of cherishing your sunset, alone, and in your favorite mug: warm and tight. Very well written and adds a unique perspective to the sunset. That it comes when you ask is a mantra for us all as might be the dawn sun. -best always - Alan

Hi Alma,
Emily's verse brought the color, once again, to another shining face. I like your idea of adding a fresh spin to a famous line. Good effort.

Bring me a sunrise in a sparkling crystal tumbler laced with curtains dipped in the whitest salts of the earth.

Sunset, sunrise. Nice to read you today.

I like the lines you write for Emily Dickinson's "Bring Me The Sunset".
The warmth and afterglow after a hectic day has passed is priceless.
I too, literally enjoy thinking about events during day, and down time is quality time for me, so I can be ready for tomorrow.
