A Dawn, Somewhere


i am more than merely
wondered at the swift dawn,
even the how of light drifting
in and through these eyes

these light baring interwoven
pieces of my past, all lovely
littered deep with twisted dreams
sung carelessly away

the notes hung like spring leaves
eager for the summer sun
of indifference, gleaming rusted
red over this dawn

these eyes hung worn tired
all glass blown with images
dark swirls on moon white canvas
yellowed in the morning

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
