One poem from As the Day Dawns

The Lake – Ellie Newbauer. .

Rousing from its slumber,

it cuddles in its blanket of mist.

An early morning breeze skitters,

and fitfully drops,

to caress its satin body.

The glassy water responds

to the whispering lover,

so close for an instant the two are one.

They separate, and the fickle gust hurries on

to spread its rippled secrets

to the farther shore.

As the misty shroud dissolves,

shadows fall,

heralding the coming sun.

Diamonds burst forth,

and in a tap, slide, turn,

they gaily dance the day away

to the lapping rhythm

of the flowing waters.
