Morning Has Broken - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana

In the dazzling sprinkle of morn
Where morsels of dew are magically born
As the sun rises from an ocean horizon
Gazing from afar are the portals of Poseidon
A cockerel crows perched on a wooden loft
As the mistral gathers pace buoyant and aloft
As in a manger the cows rise with a moo
As Aurora infects the soul like a seasonal flu
The alarm clock buzzes amidst the fading stars
As humans yawn with an eye on the marmalade jars
As breakfast tempts with waffles, jam and honey
The rat race begins, the endless pursuit of money
As the day unveils to the heaven bound Ra
Melodies of the avian pedigree stream from afar
Oh the picturesque beauty of a sunlit dawn
As squirrels scamper pass the jade-carpeted lawn
As dawn unfolds her dynamism in an alluring collage
Memories are etched forever of her breathtaking montage
