The red sun pierces the sky. Dawn is here
New glories and curiosities arrive
Children laugh and play. They have no cares near
Content with life. Into new things they dive

The day goes on. It is hot more and more
Harder to stay outside, play, and have fun
It is not as good as it was before
Slightly more cares when all is said and done

Night comes. They try to keep the storms at bay
Darkness and discouragement, they ensue
There is no more laughter and happy play
Few smiles are seen. Not much they can do

The dawn brings a new happy day with it
They see they don’t regret life one bit
