In The Morning Wake

Written by: Halie Doland

In the morning wake
when all's a dark,
the fog outside
shivers down the bark.

In the distance,
under the streetlight,
the morning mist, 
aglows so bright.

Down the road,
fo and fum,
a car engine starts
with a muffled hum.

Past the houses,
so peaceful and quiet.
Soon it will be,
a massive riot.

When the sun rays show,
the town starts to wake.
No longer dead,
it thrives in the make.
