Dear John, the sun is setting now;
Behold him in the west;
And all the children now must soon
Lie down and go to rest.

In other countries far away,
The day begins to break,
And many a child and many a bird
Will soon be wide awake.

But when the sun comes round again,
And rises in our east,
Then evening will begin with them,
And they to bed will haste.

How very good in God it is,
To make the sun to go
All round this great, wide world of ours,
To light each country so.

by ~ Henery Wadsworth Longfellow
