by kim blades, writer

I delight when I awake

to see the golden dawn

and take a thankful breath

that a new day is born.

New buds and blossoms

lift their faces, happy to inhale

the freshly perfumed air

that softly kisses grove and dale.


The morn is laden with smiles

dewed lillies and blushing rose,

I walk the hidden paths

and my delight in the morning grows.
