It takes a giant
to take hold
of the sun
and wrap it up
like a lantern
antler shaped,
and hold it
there shining gold.
There were such giants once,
so it is said.
They would light the way of travellers,
guide them through the darkness
and shine a light for all of us,
guide our way,
so it is said.
It is said that
we killed them all.
Even though it is difficult to kill a giant.
We worked out ways to do it,
worked out ways to kill
them all.
So now we just have only the sun
and now it shines less than before.
we have no giants
to capture it
and wrap it up
like a lantern.
we have no lantern
to guide us through
the darkness
