Night lied in wait watching the day
Contemplating its moment of seizure
Daylight danced and fiddled about
Relaxed in this moment of leisure
Dusk tiptoed around the sun for hours
Careful not to reveal its secret
Oh! But for no reason was it reserved
For the dawn would never have seen it
See, the light was always thinking ahead
Soaking in the warmth of the sun
While the night pondered every morning
How day took back what night thought it had won
It threw on a blanket and tried once more
To hide what daytime brought
But after only a few measly hours
All its work had been for naught
Here came the day backed by the sun
Shining in all its glory
Night had to surrender again, but
It shouted "I'll regain my territory!"
Daylight only chuckled and called right back,
"Yes, it's true indeed, my friend.
But just as sure, I guarantee,
You'll see my face again."
