Diana Rosser


So as dreams


Bright new day, familiar in its dawning
ripens as swelling fruit on the apple
tree; full of song this maturing morning
promising sweet for the autumn table.

So as dreams begin their road with dreaming
and paths to walk with hopeful wishing thoughts,
when inertia steps to first foot leaving
and stifling negatives untie their knots;

When anticipation finds its action
and the die cast is thrown into the wind,
when inside flight turns to fight reaction
the blood inside my veins begins to sing.

The new dawn rose on such a day as this
It' s time to cast the past aside and live.

How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
