Original text and translations
1 The Sky is the King of Sheds,
And he holds his court on high,
With the stars for his vassals, the clouds for his slaves,
And the winds at his bidding to fly.
The Night is the Queen of Shades,
She too holds court above,
With the moon for her mirror, the dew for her tears,
And the night flowers to claim her love!
2 The Sun is the King of Torches,
He holds his courts alone;
But he woos the earth for his lady fair,
To share his own regal throne.
The Earth is the sweetest Queen,
She holds her court the best,
With the sun for her suitor, the sky for her friend,
And the night for her children's rest.
