Night And Day - Poem by Rod Morris

When the sun sinks low there's an afterglow, from which silhouettes stand clear.
Then with moonrise we turn our eyes to watch the stars appear.
For with the setting of the sun, we know the dewfall has begun.
Ease your mind and have no fear, the time to dream is drawing near.
So close your eyes and visualise someone that you hold dear.

Above your bed moonbeams will prowl, outside a lonely dog may howl.
Beneath darkened eaves hear rustling leaves the hoot of a hunting owl.
As the moon grows pale and the dawn draws near, silhouettes again appear.
Once more we know with dawns first glow another day is here.

Lift up your head; rise from your bed.
Look eastward, greet the sun.
Forget all strife, enjoy your life.
A new days just begun.
