Just Before Dawn


Just before dawn
Ere light glows
Just as cock crows
Before the early morning bell
When earth still snores
I saw her beauty
Just natural beauty

Just before dawn
When silence reigns
When the cloud is gentle
In the silence of the dawn
When no bird sang
No frog croaks
Neither is there hooting
Nor blarring of horns
There her beauty is revealed

Yes, just natural beauty
I mean nature beauty
The clouds move in columns
Arrayed with twinkling stars
Brightened by large crescent moon
Giant trees clap their hands
Dancing joyously to the cool breeze
That oozes out from the invisible

Man snores deeply
Oblivious of the beauty around
The beauty of the dawn
Is the beauty the world needs
Where peace, joy. gentleness,
Tolerance and ordeliness reigns

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
