A New Day Is Breaking 

 

A new day is breaking

In chorus awake
To sing with the lark
With nature partake
In the beauty she’s made
As her glory shines through
In sheer hallelujahs
Coming right into view
And as sun rises slowly
High into the sky
Be uplifted, exhaulted
Let Spring’s spirit fly high 

Seagull

Okay we hear you! Yes we hear you!
Raucous bird we hear your call
Your rattling up in the air
To another seagull
We hear you squark and blether
To each other! Yes we do!
But really do you have to shout
And make this racquet too
So early in the morning
So early in the day
Oh noisy bird! How do have
So very much to say?

Dawn Breaks

They say if it’s not broken then
Don’t meddle and fix it
Or tamper with what is working
Or try to change the fit

And yet each day the dawn breaks
And birds all congregate
To natter and cheep ‘tween themselves
What could be the day’s fate

They gossip in the branches and
They shout from tree to tree
So are they fixing up the day
Or just waking up me!

And if dawn breaks is it broken?
Is it down and feeling blue
Is that why it’s a new day
To replace the old one too

Is it a good occasion to
Mend what went on before?
I think that it just might be that
A better day for sure!

The Dawn Chorus

Piercing the air with a solitary tone
Through exuberant fresh and sensual morning air
With dew clinging in pearled droplets
Replenishing nature’s reservoir
And lunar crescent bowing gracefully
Away to western shores
The single note heralds in the day
Beckoning, signalling, summoning others
To the aurora of dawn, breaking nocturne’s sleeping silent spell
To subpoena the sun from slumber’s rest.

The crystal note resonates clearly
Rousing a duet in a harmony of two then more
Awakening and embracing morning’s song
Proclaiming territory in avian serenade
With warbler eliciting trill and chink,
Chiff and chaff and rattle
Flourishing an enchanted spectacle
Tweeting nature’s splendid cantata
The hymns to the dawn from the feathered choir
The choral phenomenon of the Dawn Chorus
