Somber dreams, pierced by morning light Dawn’s tight woven tapestry Unfurled upon the night Countenances now so cheerful Not nearly now so fearful As last they were when wrap’t in fur Those faces of the night The gladsome glow, so warm to know Giving chase to gloom throughout the land Birds, beasts, snakes mice and men alike Shaken rudely awake By sol’s harsh hand Allowed no more In tranquil sleep to lay Summoned forth To face new day E’en thru keyholes and cracks so tiny… Seeps suns persistent Probing touch Telling us tacitly… Yet pray tell with great tenacity Arise! Arise! Open wide your eyes! You’ve slept friend, quite enough!

    Thanks Raz, I tried to make this sound as old-fashioned and archaic as I am. That's a hard thing to do! Nice to hear from you and incidentally the showcase is almost back to it's old self. I actually got a personal apology from managment! I think a few sarcastic poems helped too.
