The Sun Walks In His Castle

Print Share
    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.
