DAWN / Poem by Maria Miraglia

Poem by Maria Miraglia

 

DAWN

Rapt by you Dawn
by your uncertain colours
shyly breaking the deep dark
of the nights
by the first bizarre twirls
of the birds in the light air
of the early morning
with you there
to awaken Men
to a new day
I could stay for hours
to admire you silently
while wondering about the mystery
of light and gloom

How many more sunrises
will I be a witness
before the unwanted call
of the Grim Reaper
invite me to go
naked and without burdens
but the hidden secrets
kept in my soul

I’ll then think back to life
to the world
to the early hours of the mornings
their rose-pink light
and still feel amazement
and a sense of melancholic nostalgia.

@ Maria Miraglia
