Subtle rays of sun awake

Earthly living things.

Rising up as day does break

Easing out of dreams.

Now the song the dove must sing

Announces the new morn.

Donned in heaven’s golden ring

Ever thankful to be born.

Sun rises orange

Coloring its cloud canvas

Unable to warm

Winter’s hold is ever strong

‘Til spring unleashes its wrath
