What rhymes with Shone

English poem "Good morning, merry sunshine"

Text of this poem

Good morning, merry sunshine,
How did you wake so soon?
You chased away the little stars,
And shone away the moon.

I saw you go to sleep last night
Before I ceased my play.
How did you get back overhead
To shine on me today?

I did not go to sleep, dear child,
I just went round to see
The little children of the world
Who wait and watch for me.

I shone upon the little birds
And flowers on my way,
And then I came back overhead
to shine on you today.

Good morning, dear sunshine,
How did you wake up so early this morning?
You chased away the little stars
And the moon shone away

I saw how you went to sleep yesterday
Before I stopped playing.
How did you get back up there
To shine on me today

I didn't go to sleep at all, dear child
I just wandered around to see
The little children of the world
Those who wait for me and look for me

I seemed to the little birds
And flowers on the way
And then I came back up here
To shine on you today
