It's very hard to choose only a few shots
from a sunrise that fills the skies with
the outer fringes of Heaven's Majesty!
This winter we have been treated again and again
to second-to-none sunrises!
We, weighed with love and duty's call
Are not without reasons to sing
A most majestic madrigal
Is rising from time's hidden spring
It hails to people far and wide
Regales the town and countryside
Anointed with God's 'let there be'
We watch heaven's staircase unfurl
An all-encompassing 'hello'
Where Someone climbs its rungs of pearl
His golden train trails on the snow
