    The sun makes its way
    As it does every day;
    It arcs across the heavens
    And then it slips away.

    The ruddy red sunset
    Insures we don't forget;
    Death comes in nature's plan
    A time to recollect.

    Dark skies mark many a night.
    Others beam from pale moon light;
    Stars twinkle far above
    In view or hidden from sight.

    Following nocturnal deep
    The time for rest and sleep;
    Comes the bright thread of dawn
    And charges to keep--.
