Salem's Den Journal
Sun, rising, sees worshippers waiting
The fireball of life reveals her glory
Minute after minute, hour after hour
Slowly creeping into view of
Worshippers continuously Watching--
All on the globe her glory shines.
When she has been greeted,
triumphed, honored, beloved
by half the people,
she must bid farewell as she
Beginning and ending forever simultaneously.
But she leaves, in Dawn's Valediction,
in glorious shimmering colors,
reminding the people to worship her--
And as she bids adieu to one people,
Another people sees her.
She reveals her glory.
