Baby Sun rose with the day
And thought, “I must go out to play!”
Up the hills and over a stream
Baby Sun let his joy beam.
Just a little ball of energy
He ran, skipped, and chased a bee.
He tasted the wind as if a sweet
As he danced happily in the heat
Then Baby Sun climbed a pine
Got to the top and let his pride shine.
He enriched the flowers to make them grow.
In the river he dipped his toe.
Baby Sun noticed it was getting late
But he thought, “Oh sleep can wait!”
At the end of the day he was getting slow.
His shine was now only a glow.
Mother Earth took him in her arms, hugged him tight.
Now you could barely see his light.
After she dressed him all in white, Mother Earth put him in his crib and
It got dark and in the night crept.
And tucked in his crib of stars, Baby Sun slept.
As the stars rocked him in a gentle way,
Baby Sun waited and dreamed of a new day.
