The sun seems to be setting

Or slipping into bed,

But far around the curving earth

Good mornings now are said.

For though the sun has filled our day

And night is coming on,

Half round the world away

The day is just at dawn.

The sun keeps on shining,

But the earth turns in such a way

That half the world has nighttime

While the other half has day.

I think this plan is very wise

And fair to everyone,

Because it gives most parts of earth

An equal share of sun.
