As the night rises

Mark cloutier 1972 (Kaneohe)

As it passes
It is casted away
Into another day
As the night rises
Again and again
It then is bathed
By the sun in light
As the waters
Wash it away
Again it sends another
As a day bathed
As a child born
In time and space
It then bends around another
And the day falls
And the night rises
As the light of the sun
Is covered by the moon
In measured time
As space is cast
By stars in the dark
But then falls to the day
