Just After Dawn


In the early morning silence
just after dawn has broken through
I sat alone in silence observing
the start of a brand new day.
The sky was still dull and grey
as the night slowly slipped away
and the air was tainted with a slight breeze.
On tree birds began to awake
with their early morning chatter
before the full morning chorus
awakens to greet the new day.
People begin to stir from slumber
to answer their early morning call
and with the birds bring life
into the new born day.
Meanwhile I sit as an observer
silently watching all the awakening
that is going on around me.
The early morning silence
will linger for a little while yet,
by then everyone will be awake
and normal life will carry on.

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
