A Glorious Dawn


break_of_dawn_by_moonstarxx-d4mnm11
The early rays of the sun

Proudly caress my garden
Leaf to leaf, in a run!
The flowers so fast asleep
Struggle slowly like a child
With soft petals in a heap!
The birds chirp as the sun wins
Out for food from their cozy nests,
With such brilliance their day begins!
My heart admires and never defies
I keep lying on the grass
Till the sun slowly kisses my eyes!
