'Tis Morning Now...

‘Tis morning now and where the mist
Of autumn’s midnight filled the sky
A new day dawns all heaven-kissed
With hope and grace for you and I

…and who can know what will befall
Before its velvet veil descends
And dusk extols its madrigal
As yet another chapter ends

They come to pass, each moment-chant
The pulse that draws us nearer where
No longer evening shadows slant
Upon earth’s swift, four-season stair

Tis morning now; a day of grace
Expands to light earth’s little shore
The fulcrum of Time’s brief embrace
Our ticket to forevermore

‘Tis morning now; and who can dare
To squander it, for who can tell
Which step will lead from here to There?
So take this day and live it well

My friend’s mother will be laid to rest today…after the service we will return to the calling of Time, but only for a little while.
