The Sound of Dawn
All existence pauses
for the sweet echoes of dawn.
Wind gently caresses
the limbs of oak and elm,
to nesting birds.
The melodic voices of nightingales
from tree to tree
are joined by the sparrow's gentle song
and the robin's joyous melody.
The cadence of dawn's symphony rises,
as the birds intone
their thanks to the rising sun.
