An ode to the Dawn

She emerges at the end of a long night,
Bringing the blessings of a new day,
And radiates the divine, all-pervading light,
On every earthly field, forest and way.

She hovers gently, over the northen hills,
And awakens softly the sleeping heart,
With energy and life, all things she fills,
She, the invoker of days' scarlet start.

From worlds past the east and west,
The lady of light makes her path,
Over green meadows, the lonely bird's nest,
Over trees and hills of a sleeping earth.

With her merry wand, she paints light-gold
The dark gray sky and all things below,
Joyously she blesses creatures young and old,
With her eternal, forever sacred glow.

The east and west kneel before her might,
And birds greet her with their first song,
Trees adore her, the bestower of sight,
By her grace, we awaken from slumbers long.

Carried by the golden chariot of grace,
Dressed in light, crowned by the morning star,
May she return at the end of night's darkness,
Forever to erase our sorrows, and end our fear.
