Break of Day




It was now early morning
I looked across the valley
A mist was rising, drifting
Through the shadowy treetops
Sun's brilliant morning light
Revealing hidden treasures
Now before my watchful eyes
While her warmth enlivens all
The secret world before me
Silver sparkling water falls
Into the abyss below
Birds sing their holy carols
To the new born break of day
Tidings of great joy for all
My flesh quivers with delight
Wild nature tames even me
Strolling over that hill's pass
My happy face glows with tears

    How nature can have an immediate effect with its serene landscape. Happiness brings tears of joy to overcome yearnings of loved ones. Great lines old egg!

    1. PS You thought I was a townie in Melb. I have explained in detail back at my post how incorrect that is! Also, I had imagined you somewhere in rural Qld, but just looked at your profile to discover you are in SA. (Grin.)

    2. So easy to make assumptions about Australians isn't it? That is because the vast majority do live in the major cities. I stand corrected.

  19. I think you speak of tears of amazment. The first 'seeing' of the morning...perhaps even something we have seen many times before....to 'see' again fresh, as if for the first time!

  20. Bird song is minimal here; too cold, too windy, too wintery. Looking forward to spring, but your poem will do nicely until then.
