O what a new day, the sun picking up and the darkness falling
Bristling rays paint colors clean and the earth shrugs the dew.
Early melodies fill the air and charm the wind to dance anew
And I greet it with a quieted soul, still and reverent to its calling.
The dreams that caged this restless spirit have now dropped away
Fleeing with the somber moon to leave me with this day.
What approaches is a mystery, and yet its promise so enthralling .
A time to find that which my heart has for a lifetime sought
The cache for which by heavenly grace I have so sternly fought
Is glimmering in the dawning light, to it my soul is crawling.
To cast aside this awesome promise and fritter away the time
Would be to rebuke what lies ahead, a covenant sublime.
Yes that ignoble deed would be an action most gravely galling
To the righteous hand that has shaped beauty by a word
And wrongly call the breath of life, a curse idly slurred
So yes I say to the risen sun I will heed the master’s calling.
I will chase what eternal providence has so kindly borne for me,
Starry eyed with arms outstretched, enraptured and wholly free
