  1. The Dawn
    Poet: Althea Randolph

    I'm up and dressed while yet the World
    Is fast asleep in bed;
    Ofttimes I wear a skirt of blue,
    And ofttimes ruby red;
    About my waist I tie a sash
    Of golden streamers gay.
    And o'er my shoulders throw a scarf
    Of fleecy clouds of gray;
    Upon my head I place a crown
    Of opal rays of light.
    And as the Moon and Stars behold,
    They quickly take their flight!
    I carry in my hands joy-beams,
    To scatter on my way;
    And when I waken birds and flowers,
    They echo back, "Tis day!"
    Behind me comes the amber Sun, -
    Each morn he gives me chase.
    But never has he caught me yet
    In swift Aurora's race!

  2. Dawn
    Poet: Ruth Lawrence

    Aurora bids the buds awake,
    And sends the winds abroad to play,
    To croon the rose a roundelay,
    To rouse the cricket in the brake;

    To ruffle up the placid lake,
    And trick the fields for holiday.
    Aurora bids the buds awake
    And sends the winds abroad to play.

    The willow waves its mantle gray,
    The almond boughs 'neath blossoms quake,
    They hail the coming of the day;
    With drowsy sweets the lilacs shake;
    Aurora bids the buds awake.

  3. The Dawn Comes
     Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    The night can seem so black
    Any hope we have seems under attack
    It is hard to see, the sky is so dark
    The stars are its only mark.

    But then the dawn comes
    Light shines upon our problems
    The sun comes up, the light we see
    The darkness gone, we are set free.

    The sky is full of color to amaze
    The clouds look like they are ablaze
    We have before us a new day
    The dawn can bring hope, many say.

    Appreciate the beauty, stop and look
    The sky can change your outlook.
    The first sign of light, the darkness disappears
    The morning dawn can erase our fears.

    Be thankful for this dawn, this day
    Be the best you can be in every way
    Good morning to the dawn this day
    Life is good, not just okay!

  4. Dawn
    Poet: Ella Wheeler Wilcox

    Day’s sweetest moments are at dawn;
    Refreshed by his long sleep, the Light
    Kisses the languid lips of Night,
    Ere she can rise and hasten on.
    All glowing from his dreamless rest
    He holds her closely to his breast,
    Warm lip to lip and limb to limb,
    Until she dies for love of him.

  5. The Brook
    Poet: Ruth Lawrence

    What does the brook say to you,
    At dawn when it flushes,
    And kisses the rushes.
    With murmurs and blushes?
    As it sings,
    Does it tell you of wonderful things,
    Till you think every wish must come true?

    For I do —
    What does the brook say to you?

    What does the brook say to you.
    When the sun hangs its head.
    When the west is all red,
    And the day is near sped?
    As it flows ;
    Does it promise surcease of all woes,
    Till you thrill with a hope that is new?

    For I do -
    What does the brook say to you?

    What does the brook say to you,
    When the moonlight in streams,
    Like a shower of dreams.
    On its dark surface gleams?
    As it sighs
    Does it bring faltering tears to your eyes.
    Till you long for forgiveness to sue?

    For I do -
    What does the brook say to you?

    Love, does the brook say to you.
    In the dark, in the light.
    In the day, in the night,
    In despair, in delight.
    As it rolls,
    That one are our hearts and our souls,
    For life, and eternity too?

    For I do.
    What does the brook say to you?
