Aya is the voice of the morning
When the sun is rising
Up comes Obee, voice of noon,
Hot, and slow, and soon,
Sighs the voice of evening, Ohh,
gently bringing day to close.
Diya, voices in the night
Whisper, Chatter, Clamber, Shout!
And over all the sea, she sings
Of light and love and living things.
"Day's Voices" describes the four Voices that shape the course of a day: Aya, the Morning Voice; Obee, the Voice of Noon; Ohh, the Voice of Evening; and Dya, the Night Voice. It is a celebration of light, and love, and living things.
