English term or phrase: The sun's rays
Hello. I was wondering how you would say "The sun's rays" in Mandarin Chinese? Any help with a translation is greatly appreciated. I will need the translation in romanized letters (Pin ying, perhaps) as well as the Chinese characters. Thank you very much. Have a good day.

Sincerely,

Dear Sylvia, I thank you very much for your answer. I suspected that it would be two monosyllabic words but I wasn't sure; I know relatively little Chinese and would never want to assume anything with this language. Your answer helps a lot. Take care! Good luck!

Sincerely,
