Sing of the Morning… by Toni L.A. Cross


toes dressed in diamonds

in sparkling dew

that tread on a carpet

of plush emerald hue

dance to music

to the finest of strings

wee crickets make music

so you can spin

whirl with abandon

before the eyes of the dawn

coy veil unfurling

of fine glossy locks

O sing to the morning!

O sing of the day!

rejoice without censure

let this moment stay

I thought to myself

What is life?

For me it is joy and tears and strife

It’s being a woman, a friend, and a wife

It’s working and dreaming

And dancing and playing

Or wanting to chase the wind

But always staying

It’s finding the sweetness

Of unexpected love

And sprinkles of blessings

From above

It’s needing and wanting

Desire that’s haunting

It’s breathing through pain

And walking in the rain

Life is horrid and dear,

Full of excitement and fear

Life isn’t caught in these words we say

Life is just living today
