It Rises It Sets - Poem by Obed Akuma

Orange-yellow streaks
In the horizon burst
Along the dark night sky
Their path they trace
And so it rises

So soft so lovely
So pleasant so beautiful
The rays the earth strike
The rays the earth they power
Earthly processes smoothly progress
And so it continues

All power from it originate
All light from it proceed
The earth to brighten
The earth to enlighten
So single and unique
And so life provides

Orange-yellow streaks
In the horizon converge
Along the orange dusk sky
Their path having traced
To retire they go
And so it sets
