Son to sun

A poem from popular proverbs:

A son is a son till he takes a wife,
a daughter is a daughter all her life.

He that would the daughter win,
Must with the mother first begin

In the mother he can behold,
How his wife will look when old,

For a wife’s work is never done,
While he just works from sun to sun.
