The shadows cast by dawn
across the fields nearby
such magic early in the morn
a splendour I can't deny

The quiet and the peace
as this new day begins
sheep with downy fleece
blackbirds start to sing

I love this early time
when gentle thoughts
cause minds to rhyme
so many lessons taught

Each blade of grass
quivers in the wind
raindrops shining like glass
leaves floating undisciplined

Even in these short few seconds
the day has turned to light
sleep my friends does beckon
dreamily I turn out the light....

This is beautiful...


I love this early time
when gentle thoughts
cause minds to rhyme
so many lessons taught

too tru, often is the night I find myself sitting here, realing, learning laughing and crying, only to find that time passes quickly, and before we know it, a new day dawns!
Well done RG!

I would love to be in England to see a dawn like this! Your words captured the feeling like a painting! Wonderful, Rainbow!

So picturesque (sp?), you know what i mean.

I just have to have a BIG strong cup of coffee before I greet any dawn or anything else.

I'd have to say this is one of your best.

A beautiful picture, Rainbow. I envy the eyes that look out upon such a sight.

(I especially liked the line about the sheep)

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints in our heart and we are never ever the same.

Thank you all for leaving footprints!!
