Easterly Enlightening

The world in its turning advances from night;
the morning’s dim light beginning to spread.
Black fades to grey, then to luminous blue,
as a chorus of birdsong rings overhead.

Seemingly still, we progress to the light,
dawning of day and of joy in our heart.
Heads rise from pillows to take in a view,
a last glimpse of darkness as shadows depart.

Stars drift from sight at the eastern ascension;
the multitude fades in the new light released.
Now clear, the sky sings, all lights coalesce
as the singular sun rises up in the East.


  1. Thanks guys. Baroness, being right doesn't mean you gotta rub it in my face ;)
