Dawn

Awake with dawn I greet this day
And celebrate with joyous heart
The dark of night now long away

The dark begone and don’t delay
Farewell to night I must depart
Awake with dawn I greet this day

I long to have the morning stay
To keep it tucked inside my heart
The dark of night now long away

Swiftly now the morning will fray
Beauty she gave of natures art
Awake with dawn I greet this day

The close of night I hope and pray
The dawn brings us a brand new start
The dark of night now long away

Those of us who cherish this way
Spurn the night that we know must start
Awake with dawn I greet this day
The dark of night now long away

says:

A clever write Craig, I thought it reminded me of Dylan Thomas.
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

I believe was written by the great man in Florence ( Firenze ) 1947.

For all of us early risers a Villanelle
