Note from Sponsor:

Do not forget to put the ellipsis. Poems will not pass to Round 2 if they do not have it.

Contest Description

The motto of the sundial imagined for my contest is: I only tell of sunny hours.

Using that motto as the first line, but written exactly like this :

I only tell of sunny hours...

so with ellipsis, create a personification poem.  Your sundial is very wise!
