On the dirt there is a lid trying to cover the number of times the dawn has risen here. You walk over and pull the lid off and the whole thing transforms into a podium. A podium for the dawn to tell you how many times it's risen over this dirt over and over again. It just keeps going and you realize the lid was here because this dang podium can't seem to keep a lid on it! (Get it? Figure of speech!)
You listen to what the podium has to say for so long you finally can't help but ask, "Who are you?" "I'm the dawn (だん), of course!" And this is my podium where I spread the good news about the dawn!
