A NEW DAY BECKONS
A new day beckons hearts awake to sing
As jeweled dew drops freshen every blade
A flash of flicker-flight on morning wing
Through Hemlock boughs renews the forest glade.
Eternity arises with the dawn
In misty shrouded forests by the sea
The sword fern camouflage the sleeping fawn
Beneath the soaring Cedar canopy.
Awake my soul, your morning anthem raise
To join the Varied Thrush in Matin’s cry
Leap up my soul, your Recreator praise
In silent wonder seek him eye to eye.
The darkness fades, behold the new day breaks
As all creation in Christ’s light awakes.
~a sonnet by David Robinson
