First Line: I saw you at your glory's height
Last Line: Surrendered to the somber night.
Subject(s): Sun


I saw you at your glory's height:
I watched you flaunt your colors bright
With purple, rose, a crimson fold,
And bits of emerald set in gold.

I watched your glory slowly fade:
Your colors seemed a sad brigade
As red and gold slipped softly away
And violet turned to evening gray.

I saw the way you took defeat --
Like a stalwart soldier in defeat --
As every color, robbed of might,
Surrendered to the somber night.
