Lo, our sun now fills a wan sky
with such wondrous light.
This magic god-star brings us our warmth and joy
and, from on high, his mystic rays
pour through dark and scowling clouds.
Our thoughts will not accord him thanks
nor ask why our souls must always try to
climb out of a soft cocoon,
a warm and loving womb,
to gain an unknown star ( so cold, )
from all known things.
