From "The Mikado."

The sun, whose rays
Are all ablaze
With ever living glory,
Does not deny
His majesty-
He scorns to tell a story;
He don't exclaim
"I blush for shame,
So kindly be indulgent."
But fierce and bold,
In fiery gold.
He glories all effulgent:
I mean to rule the earth.
As he the sky-
We really know our worth,
The sun and I!

Observe his flame,
That placid dame,
The moon's Celestial Highness:
There's not a trace
Upon her face
Of diffidence or shyness:
She borrows light
That, through the night,
Mankind may all acclaim her:
And, truth to tell.
She lights up well.
So I, for one, don't blame her!
Ah, pray make no mistake,
We are not shy;
We're very wide awake.
The moon And I!
