We Need Natural Light

Enough with CFLs and the glare of tablet screens,
We crave heat and light from above.
Enough with LEDs and the glow of TV screens,
We need rays from the sun like we need love.

Enough with light filtered through a window screen,
We want light that is straight from the source.
Enough with light that passes through blinds to be seen,
We need light that’s taken its natural course.

Give us brilliant sunlight and a bit of fresh air
And soon our spirits will soar.
Give us warmth from above and a sky that is fair
And we won’t ask for anything more.
