The Prince of Night is in love with the Morning Princess,

The Princess is stupefying with golden jewellery added to her dress;

She is fair and cheerful,

He is dark and mournful.

The Prince though tall and handsome,

is always doleful and glum;

While she is full of  vivacity,

She is full of vitality.

Every night the Prince waits for her in despair,

She refuses to come in a proud air;

She appears every morning with a dazzling brilliance,

The Prince fears her extraordinary radiance.

So every morning he flees,

With a stolen look he sees;

One day she grabs him and says,"Why are you feeling low?

It's your seeds of love that now I am going to sow!"
