Day Has Broken Since - Poem by John G. Nelson

Day has broken ever since
Dressing up to get to work
Here to walk, getting train
Sound of it arrival, it wings

Ye ‘re so many getting out
Ye ‘re so many getting in…
Smiles & sometime frowns
Yet the dawn seem pretty

Ride pretty, but soon ends,
Yet, walking many miles still,
Distance widens & embraces
If at all, I couldn’t praise today?

Here I spoke with my boss
Yet, I couldn’t get started,
How disappointing a day,
I pleaded, but got no smile

Here, stands a lonely day
Chatting with young plants
Looking the sky for comfort
And listening to passing cars.
