Gold Star - 4,968 Points (August 20,1937 / Estonia)

Dawning - Poem by Liilia Talts Morrison

Today my life is not at all
what it once used to be
the dark and dreary vale of tears
has turned to fancy free

Today my life flows like a brook
no rapids up ahead
no rocks or whirlpools of despair
no sleepless nights of dread

Today my life is one of faith
hard won through many scars
how dark it was before the dawn
from far beyond the stars

Today the challenges and bumps
that everyone must face
are helped and lifted easily
by unseen hands of grace

Today my life is not my own
I'm guided by a way
paved with a crown of thorns and blood
on that most fateful day

Today my life is life indeed
not just a muddling through
the weary days of mindless quest
no purpose and no clue

Today my life is rich with love
with joy and truth and light
as long as I share all I have
with friends and foes alike

Today my life is not at all
what it once used to be
the dark and dreary vale of tears
has turned to fancy free.
