DAWN

The sun rose lazily from its beautiful bed, 

Shinning slightly to awake the earth, 

Its arrival signalling a new beginning,

Intruding sleep but spreading comforting silver rays to all.


The birds started chirping, high in the trees, 

With their sonorous voices, they sang, 

Awaking creatures with their diverse verses,

The end of rest they announce, 

For night comes when no man can work, 

But, no food for lazy man.

Arise, all ye that slumbereth, 

For the dawn calleth unto thee, 

Oh! Depart from the beautiful fantasies of la-la land, 

Forget the woes of the days gone,

Rise with vigour, vitality and vehemence, 

Clothe thyself with grace, strength and honour, 

Crown thyself with hope,

For the dawn bringeth a new day, a fresh start and better opportunities. 


Yours in scribbling,
