COME LET US ........



LET US......

Come. let us leave sleep and put on the morning.
Waken to first trembling birth of the day.

Listen as mist gives way to symphonic new scales
stirring dawns's fragile music.
Watch as dome's blue widens its azure-blue maw.

Note how warmth cracks open buds' sticky coatings
of dew-soaked velvet
then applaud as night's jacket of cold disappears.


Let us imagine the tune nature hums when golden 
rays voice another day's beams.
Nod in agreement as chill is de-frocked and hours
of restless dreaming forgotten.

Run with the nectar of virgin haste when sunglow
races new joys to prepare.
Dress in excitement's changes and learn morning's
story written on earlyness.

Let us produce smiles of welcome to cleansed air.
Drink all the freshly-pressed juices
of day as blaze melts shadows of night's outflow.

Using light's glory let awe dance, 
come throw off blind nocturnal attire and adorn
life by putting on morning.

    A fine morning, and all-day write Fay. it started me off with the hymn: 'Come let us join our cheerful songs'.
    And yet, in churches with ye olde language, there is a line: 'The burden of our sins are intolerable to us'. So is my singing to some! heehee.

    • Fay Slimm

      Yes a fine morning can make us feel life singing my friend -- thank you for the comment and pleased that you liked the read.

    • Lorna

      Yes Fay - I am all for "unfrocking the chill"............ we're getting there!

      • Fay Slimm

        I get over-indulgent with my personifications and metaphor dear Lorna but so pleased you picked up on the phrase I thought apt - - hurry on Spring eh so we can see better mornings. Thanks for the lovely comment.

        • LAWLESS

          Made me feel all warm and tingly. A great way to embrace the coming day. Thanks for the nice start to my day off from work.

          • Fay Slimm

            Pleased the verse warmed your start to the day Lawless -- I agree morning has so much to offer if we wake early and take in its aura. Thanks so much for the visit and read.

          • Daveyboyz

            Polished poetry as always Fay.

            • Fay Slimm

              Thanks a load Davey for this encouraging compliment - - it took me a while to polish the imagery in this free-style tribute to morning's first music. Pleased you like the read.

            • Maxine Smith

              Fabulous to read, great flow and great meaning. Loved it.

              • Fay Slimm

                Your fresh and honest review is very welcome dear Maxine. Am pleased too the flow of the piece appealed - mornings are full of reasons to put pen to paper when I rise early.

                • Maxine Smith

                  This is it. I would love to rise early overlooking a beautiful rain forest view, now that is the beautiful dream.

                  CARPE DIEM ~ SEIZE THE DAY !

                  Thanks FAY for another beautiful Poem which parallels our awakening (to face a New Day) and Nature's daily awakening !
                  HUMAN AWAKENING ~ We leave sleep ~ listen & watch and appreciate the Day warming up ! We wash & dress and enjoy "fresh pressed orange juice !" and then ~ PUT ON THE MORNING !
                  NATURE ~ The dawn light dawns and Spring buds are opening ~ the air temperature starts to rise ~ rays of Sun & buzz of bees ~ the wind purifies the air ~ MORNING HAS BROKEN ! Let us rejoice in every NEW DAY ~ AMEN Yours as ever BRIAN !

                  • Fay Slimm

                    Yes mornings in every season give us reasons to rejoice in new days Brian - your visits and comments are always welcome and am delighted you enjoyed the read.
