“Good morning, Merry Sunshine,
How did you wake so soon,
You’ve scared the little stars away
And shined away the moon.
I saw you go to sleep last night
Before I ceased my playing;
How did you get ‘way over there?
And where have you been staying?”
“I never go to sleep, dear child,
I just go round to see
My little children of the East,
Who rise and watch for me.
I waken all the birds and bees
And flowers on my way,
And now come back to see the child
Who stayed out late at play.”
