A New Day.


Superb poem, This is a keeper.

Musings of PuppyDoc


What do we do, come that day,

when walk we must through vacant streets,
when frore and tremulous become the nights,
and windowpanes with autumn’s dew weep?

What do we do, come that day,
when summertide flees from bitter air’s chase,
when even the trees forsake their leaves,
And swallows depart to a fitter place?

For that day has come,
   
and now we weep,
        
as the earth reclaims another,
              
and souls now sleep.

But come winter’s call new snow will fall,
then
autumn’s death will be entombed.
And as morning rays gleam through curtain seams,
New seedlings in our hearts will bloom.

Then we will know that a new day has come.
