A Quiet Time - Poem by David Harris

Between the dawn and the daylight,
there is a quiet time
when the creatures of the night
scurry to their warm beds,
and creatures of the daylight
begin to yawn before getting out of theirs.
A quiet time when the world
seems so much at peace.

    A wonderful poem David, that's the time when I get a tap on the shoulder and rise and begin to write some of my favourite poems. Thanks David, this is truly a lovely little treasure.--Melvina-- (Report) Reply
