Pay attention to the sunlight,

the sunlight is the most warm, visible radiation of all.

Down, down into the darkness it goes- the hot, the tender, the close.


A candlelight, however hard it tries, will always be glowing.

Does the candlelight make you shiver?


The sunshine pierces harshly.

Are you upset by how bright it burns?


Yet stands the candlelight,

in the vacancy of the sunlight,

gently it glows in the darkness of the soul.
