30. The Sun’s Travels

THE SUN is not a-bed, when I 
At night upon my pillow lie; 
Still round the earth his way he takes, 
And morning after morning makes. 
While here at home, in shining day,         5
We round the sunny garden play, 
Each little Indian sleepy-head 
Is being kissed and put to bed. 
And when at eve I rise from tea, 
Day dawns beyond the Atlantic Sea;  10
And all the children in the West 
Are getting up and being dressed.
