It takes a giant

to take hold 

of the sun

and wrap it up

like a lantern

and hold it


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
