Morning Song

Awake my child, and see the skies,
See the birds and the butterflies,
Sing with nature's morning cries.

See the sun through morning haze -
Laughing, watch it spread its rays.
Make it your friend - enjoy this day.

Because you don't know what I know :
That in a few hours' time, that sun is going to go super-nova.
