Dawn waked quietly
As she spread her golden wings
And edged across a concave sky
To make a new day sing
Lazy shadows huddled ’round
Content to remain, quite clear
Yet willingly acquiesced
When urged with such bright cheer
Trees stretched, robins sang
And sparkling dew began to fade
Yet it all seemed well and proper
As darkness couldn’t play
So with the way prepared
The sun slid past the rim
And glorious light filled the sphere
As a new day echoed hymns

Thanks to my grandson, Jeremy Dodd, for furnishing the last line to this poem.
