The sun rises
Gracing the treetops with a golden morning glow
Sunbeams bursting through clouds
A stairway for the angels
Flowers turn their faces to greet the east
Heralded by the song of sparrows and finches
And I dance through the woods
Searching for the fiery jewel itself
But once again I am too late
Escaped just through my fingertips into the bright blue sky
So I sink to the ground
Beneath the giant willow tree
To await the morning and the chance to touch
My lover once again

One beautiful morning before school started inspired this poem.
