Good Morning – A Quadrille

Good Morning

Sleep slinked away like a thief in the night
In the wee hours of the morning
countless sheep filled a head
waiting for dawn to break
With it came brightness and clarity
A palette of blazing orange
with whisps of grey brushing the sky

    Nicely done, Christine, especially the simile ‘sleep slinked away like a thief in the night’. For me too, morning brings ‘brightness and clarity’ – and I love autumn mornings especially.
