The empire of light

Through the day in the upper world
The sun’s bright and the sky’s blue
Bring a fresh breeze spirit over garden
Where birds and flowers
Singing in colorful unison

Through the shadow in the night world
The moon smiles and the stars glow
Bring a mystic dim curtain over palace
Where candles and fairy lamps
Dancing like glittering fireflies

Through the queen’s mirror
Through the lake’s reflection
Through the wit of painter
Through the heart of admirer
Darkness will never conquer
The empire of light

Inspired by L'Empire des Lumières, Rene Magritte
