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.
