A Beautiful Day

Lee Geoghegan 1983 (Dublin)

Dawn has arrived, rays of gold split the night,
The sweet rhythm of bird song, a morning delight,
Wings all a flutter with colour’s so bright,
A gift to the beholder, such a wholesome sight.

Sunlight sparkles like diamonds, glittering upon a winding stream,
Morning dew blankets the lush meadow grass,
Bee’s buzzing cheerfully as they work for the team,
Nature painting upon its canvas, the most supreme colour scheme.

Two brilliant white swans glide upon a still lake,
Together they drift, majestic and carefree,
Breaking the mirrored surface, a delicate trail in their wake,
A special partnership neither will ever forsake.

Faces of smiling children as they run and play,
A morning adventure awaits, an inquisitive foray,
So many possibilities to mould like clay,
Into the forest they go to seize the day,

Young lovers lay cradled amongst fields of gold,
Sharing a love so pure, each other’s hand they hold,
Gazing in utter bliss at the blue sky above,
Two souls intertwined, forever in love.

Dusk is upon us, the day retiring to night,
The blazing sun has subsided to a subtle twilight,
Life hunkers down with a sense of dismay,
Darkness soon to fall, to conquer the day.

Flowers succumb to the night, to bloom again soon,
Petals they close, under the light of the moon,
A brand new day only a moment away,
A signal of rebirth from the cold night decay.

A glorious golden sun is on the cusp of arise,
It’s warming light, the ultimate prize,
Creatures great and small cease their solemn cries,
For a new day has dawned, ready to rejuvenate, replenish and revitalise.
