Moment In The Morn


The slow founts of dawn,
On a cool winters day.
Cast but one momentous shadow,
Where the new fawn once lay.

Pausing silently in the moment,
Sensing fresh dew on the sod.
Delight in the advent,
And the glory of God.

That still in the early,
And the middle of morn.
Forget for one moment,
Life's trials and its scorn.

So tell me of virtue,
Sweet family and home.
Tis' my God of Thee,
Give me this moment alone.

Morning shall soon pass,
As I linger and yearn.
Praying my God of Thee,
For this moment's return.

    A lovely poem, being author's first poem, even then so beautiful and amazing, a well deserved selection for poem of the day. (Report) Reply

    A beautiful poem and the meanings are also praiseworthy. The events of life and family and god's grace all are inter connected and made it into a meaningful poem. I liked it. (Report) Reply

    A very inspiring and uplifting write. Yes mornings are
    very beautiful indeed. The start of the day when spirits
    and emotions are high. Enjoyed. (Report) Reply

    The poem has good solid quatrains, but uses mannerisms like morn and Tis that are a pseudo-poetical style. If you
    read modern poetry from Burnside or Hughes or Heaney you won`t find this A good poem, but the reader notices it is a first one. (Report) Reply

    A good beginning. The very first stanza is the best. Others don't quite live up to that. When you write a poem, listen to yourself. You should sound (a) as you do when you talk naturally, not put-on and, yet, at the same time, (b) have a slightly heightened tone in your words. Stanza #1 does exactly that; each of the others has just a bit of a false sound. Listen for it. Keep working on it. Sometimes you have to write it over and over again. That's OK. I'll be looking for more from you. (Report) Reply

    great poem, nothing like the first few hours of the day when the world is stirring to life and new promises and challenges, a time to take a deep breathand enjoy. (Report) Reply

    That still in the early, And the middle of morn. Forget for one moment, Life's trials and its scorn.
    Morning shall soon pass, As I linger and yearn.Praying my God of Thee, For this moment's return.
    Those two stanzas moved me the most because they are true. Everyonce in a while I get in these happy moods where I am worry-free. A moment of temporary joy that just never seems to hang around long enough. (Report) Reply
