Through the windows was slipping no light,

Everywhere, only the melancholy darkness of the night.

 

I loved to sleep, and this was a great opportunity,

But with the Sun gone there was something queer about the city.

 

I looked around the World, which was utterly confused,

As the biggest bulb of the galaxy had suddenly fused.

 

And as I imagined a dark world,

Many questions in my mind unfurled-

“Where is the Sun?”

being the major one.

 

Again, I looked out of my window at the befuddled town,

And in a distant house there was a bright light

which made it look like a splendid crown.

 

I slipped through the door and followed the light,

And as I reached the house,

I saw rays blindingly bright.

 

Looking through a gap in the window,

I saw the Sun resting as he tried to repair his flickering light.

And after some talk I became aware that,

 

Poor bright Sun had been pushed by the jealous dull moon,

And he had fallen on his back from a great height.
