  9. Sun and Moon
    Sun is a light,lighting the afternoon sky,
    leaving the white clouds behind,
    it goes down the mountain,
    bye

    Moon is a sliver of light,
    waiting in the night,
    setting off a glow to shine bright,
    There it goes,
    behind the mountain,
    now it waits for it’s lonely rest

  15. Sunshine and Moonlight

    Sunshine flows through the sky, it keeps me warm all through the day. Then it gets darker, and the light starts fading away.

    Moonlight comes in the night, then I see stars shining bright. Moonlight replaces the shine of the day, and that’s when I sleep the night away.
