Kylart Shop Feature: Sunrise, Sunset!

Sunrises, Sunsets - we never get tired of looking at them, photographing them, painting them, writing about them. They mark the start and end of each day and symbolize the beginning and end of life. What better song to illustrate the symbolism of sunrises and sunsets than Fiddler on the Roof's Sunrise, Sunset?I wanted to share these two paintings with you, and I can’t think of a better song to go with them. Enjoy!


Tevye: Is this the little girl I carried

Is this the little boy at play?

Golde: I don't remember growing older

When did they?

Tevye: When did she get to be a beauty

When did he grow to be so tall?

Golde: Wasn’t it yesterday when they were small?




Chorus:

Sunrise, sunset

Sunrise, sunset

Swiftly flow the days

Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers

Blossoming even as we gaze

Sunrise, sunset

Sunrise, sunset

Swiftly fly the years

One season following another

Laiden with happiness and tears



Tevye: What words of wisdom can I give them

How can I help to ease their way?

Golde: Now they must learn from one another

Day by day

Perchik: They look so natural together

Hodel: Just like two newlyweds should be

Perchik & Hodel: Is there a canopy in store for me?

Chorus:

Sunrise, sunset

Sunrise, sunset

Swiftly fly the years

One season following another

Laiden with happiness and tears
