A Sunset a Plum Tree and Dawn Have you ever seen a sunset When the dying day has fled And the whole world seems to wallow in its glow, When the melting sun effulgent Paints the sky a pallid red And the breezes are too mystified to blow? Have you ever seen a plum tree When it blossoms overnight Although snow lies all about it on the ground, And the people gaze with wonder At the flowers pink and white While the snowflakes swirl in silence all around? Have you ever been out walking In the first clear light of dawn When suddenly a robin starts to sing, And both man and beast are happy For the dark of night is gone As they listen to the harbinger of spring?
