Birth of a Day





From vaults of virgin hope You take
Its fair and finest fray
Weaving beneath far-fancied east
A new and glorious day

In gossamer embellishments
Of coral, gold and pink
Mercy imbues with transient hues
Earth’s mute and mystic brink

Without a sound darkness recedes
And from Compassion’s lips
Extended grace brushes the face
Of  life’s stumbles and slips

A miracle of wonderment
Exhales from heaven’s girth
As we of meek astonishment
Witness a new day’s birth
