Awake Before Dawn - by Bob Atkinson

Awake Before Dawn
(c)2015 Bob Atkinson

Awake before dawn I find
a world of simple charm
semi-darkness, still, with foggy looks
a hustle here, then gone

as birds begin their conversation
with each and every pair
of robins discussing what to do
in this world of little care

meadow larks respond bravely
shouldn't be forgotten
as with all animals of forest
they present their wishful longings

birch fingers raise up to the sky
to present a birdful perch
waiting for their seed to grow
white branches tall and certain

a pleasant countryside of love
here in the morning dew
a lovely presentation of
plants, animals, me and you
