The morning sun from azure sky
Beams over land and sea,
The flowers bloom, the waters play.
All nature laughs in glee.
At noon dark clouds the sky o'ercast.
The dank wind sighs and moans,
The rtiin drops fall, the thunder rolls,
All nature weeps and groans.
To life's short day the law applies;
As rain clouds come and go,
So passing sorrows make of life
Alternate joy and woe.
