welcome the dawn
as sunshine sprays the trees with golden light,
inspires a warrior
with keen insight,
saves the nation from its plight.
these are the gifts of god…
like cows and chickens,
a friendly nod
honey and spice and the valiant horse
that speeds us on a noble course
oh! the thrill of scents in the garden of the sunwarmed rose
these and more…
yes and love
come from above
so i thank god that i can see and be
a human in his mystery.
too bad the devil has strewn the barefoot path
with shards of broken glass
beware! and remember…
the devil is an ass.
the bird of sweetest virtue known
whose gracious gifts
the world has sown
she's all good women
clean as gold
all paragons of beauty as ancient poets told.
so, every gentle man must know the recipe for love to grow.
cherish love…. love's candle forever burn
let passion's fires ebb and flow
and you will never wayward go.
expect nothing in return but
give love consciously… let go
and one more for good measure.
