This book holds the items for the contest I enter in 2019, 2020, and beyond.
|As dawn breaks slowly in the east,
I raise my voice in joyful praise,
Ray by ray I consume light's feast,
Giving thanks for the sun's bright blaze.
O Lord, I give thanks for first light,
That announces a brand new day,
And scatters the darkness of night,
As I rise from my bed to pray.
Outside I hear sparrows singing,
Proclaiming their jubilation,
I listen to their songs ringing:
My soul shouts its exaltation.
