The Lion and the Eclipse by Warren Brown
Nature needs sunshine
Nature needs rain,
Nature needs protection,
From death and pain.
When the Sun is Eclipsed by the Moon,
Nature is eclipsed by the Sun.
The Sun is the source of life and power,
Even the King of the Jungle needs the Sun.
The Lion looks up at the Sun,
And he knows he is truly Blessed,
As no Solar or Lunar Eclipse
Can ever put the fiery Sun to rest.
