Breaking Dawn

Dawn gives birth to a new day:
Rushing in a flood of sun rays
Piercing morning mantel of dew,
Lifting new bride’s veil: for full view.

Alarmed a cockerel coos,
Alight atop a chicken coop
Announcing the entry of a new bride
Glowing along nature’s aisle, she strides.
Across the floor she waltzes;
As birds sing, a symphony rises.

Streams dance and sing their way;
Squirrels on trees hop and play;
Butterflies kiss-greet, flower after flower
Greeting nature’s children, like a mother.

The bees come buzzing and enquiring,
What feast-day? They seemed asking.

On this stage, in a single chorus, nature sang:
It’s your birthday today! To God, nature thanked.

    Very fine poem with a natural rythmic quality to it. Good use of imagery which engages the reader in the pictuiresque setting of the poem. Take a bow Mr Sabastian (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
