First Line: I know how the great and golden sun
Last Line: In the wonderful hills of sleep.
Subject(s): Sun; Moon


I know how the great and golden sun
Will come up out of the sea,
Stride in to shore
And up to her door,
To touch her hand and her hair,
With so much more than a man can say,
Bidding Yvonne good day.
I know how the great and quiet moon
Will come up out of the sea,
And climb the hill
To her window-sill
And enter all silently,
And lie on her little cot so white,
Kissing Yvonne good night.
I know how the great and countless stars
Will come up out of the sea,
To keep their guard
By her still door yard,
Lest the soul of Yvonne should stray
And be lost for ever there by the deep,
In the wonderful hills of sleep.
