No. 17 - Solo - Amasis - "The morning's heartless Sun."
||The morning's heartless sun will gild
The roofs of this proud city;
Nor heed my heart dismayed and chilled:
Why won't the sun show pity?
The moon today will flood again
The garden of this Palace;
It may be foolish to complain,
But need she be so callous?
The stars which watched us plight our troth,
We trusted to their blindness;
Their steely eyes deny us both
The milk of human kindness.
The day dawns like an opening flow'r
Though my glad dream is shattered;
I think the world in this dark hour
Might just pretend it mattered.
