The Sun Walks In His Castle

    The sun walks in his castle.

    He mounts a crystal stair

    Where dawn’s bright silken banners

    Are fluttering everywhere.

    He climbs the steps, majestically,

    Inspects his airy home,

    And strides its highest parapets

    Beneath that azure dome.

    Then down the western staircase

    In regal pomp he goes,

    To the great hall’s flickering firelight

    As sunset portals close.
