Her substance is softly enveloped in cool beams of moonlight
And her bosom, the mountains, are clad in a misty gray negligee.
While sleeping Earth's partial body is subdued by darkness of night,
Quietly resting, waiting for nocturnal shadows to pass away.
The Sun once again approaches her, this bright and eager one,
To resume his place at his precisely appointed time of duty,
Knowing it is the moment for night's darkness to be done
So human eyes can experience Earth's unrivaled beauty.
The Sun embraces Earth's drowsy body with experienced rays,
Gently nudging her with subdued first light without fail,
And then with bold and bright light in a splendid blaze,
He deftly removes Earth's mysterious, dark and vaporous veil,
Awakening her essence, that of her cool and sleeping clay,
So that Sun and Earth's unity give mankind yet another day.
