"OH DAY OF FIRE AND SUN"

Oh day of fire and sun,
 Pure as a naked flame,
Blue sea, blue sky and dun
 Sands where he spoke my name;


Laughter and hearts so high
 That the spirit flew off free,
Lifting into the sky
 Diving into the sea;


Oh day of fire and sun
 Like a crystal burning,
Slow days go one by one,
 But you have no returning.
