The slow founts of dawn,
On a cool winters day.
Cast but one momentous shadow,

    great poem, nothing like the first few hours of the day when the world is stirring to life and new promises and challenges, a time to take a deep breathand enjoy. (Report) Reply

    That still in the early, And the middle of morn. Forget for one moment, Life's trials and its scorn.
    Morning shall soon pass, As I linger and yearn.Praying my God of Thee, For this moment's return.
    Those two stanzas moved me the most because they are true. Everyonce in a while I get in these happy moods where I am worry-free. A moment of temporary joy that just never seems to hang around long enough. (Report) Reply

    This is a beautifully written and expressed poem, Barry, one filled with splendid imagery in every verse. I also liked the excellent phrasing in this poem and the repetition of certain lines. I have always been a proponent of repetition in poetry myself. You captured quite well one of those superb moments when nature and it's Creator are in a wondrous harmony. Carl. (Report) Reply

    I enjoyed this so much a very enriching write full of imagery and hope.I too have been there in the early morning light and thought the same thoughts.I just wish that our Lord will soon take control of the system of this world I wish he will soon come (Report) Reply

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
