Below the shining ceiling spanned above
Inside the tiny loges spread around
A young girl with her mother sitting down
Is waiting the beginning of the play.
She’s wearing a new dress she bought last week
With fancy haircut that she likes so much
And rising from her seat with prying eyes

To show the sun is up and lights the day.
We see the rocky mountains spread around
With green and scattered spots all over them
That are from lonely trees among the stones
Like spears raised from the forest to the top.
Few groups of houses s...
