Waking Early

Uncategorized

Day comes shining out of darkness bath

all the birds have noticed with their voices

varied as feathers

the clouds come up underlit

and trees that all night clasped at stars

let go and hold out for love

children mew then quieten

warm and dreamy in stitched washed beds

where all through the dark they travelled alone

until this soft day

like water, like a pillow

broke over them.
