Dawn

You are so lovely, they say
You always come with a circular
  lantern
Though how it looks I can’t say
Because I am always asleep
  seeing none!

When you start your wonderful
  entry
The birds always dance and sing
  with merry
The swallows open their beaks
  and twitter
While the doves coo lovelily and
  flutter

But I have a qualm with you
I have to say that you are not
  fair
Because you always come when all
Children are asleep but a few
And the honor to inaugurate a new day
You always don’t share

When you start a new day
It is only because you hurt the
  darkness and it flees
You always lender their leader the moon
Useless as you smite ‘em and slay
Chasing them to hide in closed houses
  and in the shadows

Can’t you have mercy???
