SUNRISE, by                    
First Line: Have you ever seen the sunrise
Last Line: Around each flower sublime.
Subject(s): Dawn; Sunrise

Have you ever seen the sunrise
On a mighty ocean blue
As it pushes back the morning mist
To watch dawn's blushing hue . . .?

Have you ever seen the sunrise
As it climbs the golden steps?
Each one a rosy billow
Like foamy, lacy nets . . .

Well then, you've missed the sunrise
A-comin' o'er the mountains;
And you have missed it shinin'
On the silvery gushing fountains . . .

And you have missed the sunrise
As it kissed each silvery pine;
While its rays spread like a capelet
Around each flower sublime.
