Farewell the Sun, We Meet on the Morning

Sunset in Agadir, Morocco
Sunset in Agadir, Morocco

Farewell to the sun, we meet in the morning
When warmth again it shall the earth
Creatures all shall seek solace in or from it,
Father of all on that here have known birth.

Ayyur, she watches over us tonight,
As the cold, it cloaks the darkened land,
When light comes, she shall sleep herself,
As the Sun once again makes its stand!

“Ayyur” is the Berber name for the Moon, also the Moon goddess.In common with other cultures, it is believed that the Sun and Moon were worshipped by the ancient Berber peoples.
