                       DAWN
Flaming with purple and gold,
Bounding like foal from a gate,
Suddenly, dawn has revealed
The face of the reticent day.

Kissing the robin awake;
Leaning to garner the dew,
Charming the hare from its brake,
Morning confronts us anew.

Dawn can be stirring and grand;
Dawn can be dreaded and chill.
Left to our own sleight of mind
To render it Heaven or Hell.
