Great Golden Orb

I watched you...
Great Golden Orb
Bursting forth into the morning
Leaping out of the fire that is the sky.

I watched you...
Great Golden Orb
As the day grew strong
And the flames of the morning
Were drowned in the blue of the sky.

I watched you...
Great Golden Orb
In your twilight
Your strength failing
Your life light waning.

I watched you...
Great Golden Orb
Helpless...as you fell
Consumed whole
By the flames that gave you birth.
