I thought of her as an early bird today
for me it wasn’t quite time to fly away.
she put on a pretty dress at first light,
Slowly came into sight,
out from the night,
Face-to-face . . . we finally met.
Her smile so gentle moved
A ravishing beauty I longed to see!
With a warm
kiss she touched me all over
A sudden surprise to roll the day closer,
Awaiting her gleam in
The crescent moon...still shining bright.
I rubbed the sleep from my eyes.
On a restless night, I met an early sunrise,
As she dawned into the light of day!
From a collection of poetry in the novel—THE CANYON’S SHADOW by Gypsy Quill.
'Dawn' is an award-winning poem,’International Poet of Merit Award’,
for which Gypsy Quill was inducted into the International Society of Poets by Bo Derek in 2002.
*This poem has a dual meaning with a metaphor at the end. You can read it as if it is referring to a sunrise. But then, you can go back and read it as if it is referring to a Lady named Dawn. It works both ways.
