The Sun Goes Dark

Coastal: Create Your Own-Coastal Bend West Guth Park
Team El Lockett

Oh, the things you can do at West Guth Park,

You can bike, swim,or watch stars after dark.

I've seen many people play

And have even heard my parents say

''I do!"

Think of all the things you could do too.

I went there to view something rarely seen

Looking only at it through an idle phone screen

Both I and an umbraphile

Had a view that was worthwhile.

By Emily Lockett-Salazar

Hour by hour the moon made its way 

Blocking out the sun on a hot August day.

I'm sad to report that this event is no more

And cannot be seen again til 2024.
