The Morning And Evening Sun

The sun climbs majestically to the sky,

In golden robe from greening bed.

Long-beaked choristers announce your presence,

Purple banner says you’re here.

Smiling king above the earth,

So silent ,

The sweat is gone, the sight is nice,

Its time to say goodbye to us.
