of the morning sun-the source of light and heat of all the animate world. It
quickens its pace, and in a twinkling of an eye, it vanishes. It trembles to
live long, lest the impurity of the world defiles its noble life. It is born
only to reflect the glory of the sky and grandeur of the sun's light. Taking
pity on its tearful appeals, perhaps the Sun inhales it back again into the land
of bliss. It stays not for a second more, since its object of reflecting the
radiant glory of the heaven has come to a close".
