There is a wise Magician,

Who sets a yellow star

To seal the cinders of the night

Within a hollow jar.

And when the jar is broken,

A marvel has been done;

There lies within the rosy dusk

That coal we call the sun.

But more than any wonder

That makes the rose of dawn,

Is this inheritance of joy

My heart is happy on.

From ‘Songs of the sea children’ by Bliss Carman.
