The performers start to gather
ready for the show
eagerly I take my seat
in a balcony row

from the darkened wings
I hear them
warming up their song
anxiously I wait for
“Prelude To The Dawn”

The stage is dark
black curtains rise
and footlights start to glow
everyone is in their place
ready for the show

The songbirds sing
and flit about
the sky is changing color
the clouds appear
and breezes blow
and daylight starts to shine

The set is such a masterpiece
a gentle landscape scene
the sun appears
on center stage
in glowing splendor
and all too soon
it’s over

another exquisite performance
of “An Ode To The Sun”
from the “Sunrise Suite”
and a standing ovation from me

on my hilltop perch
