Still the Dawn

by philipdodd

Still the dawn, still the dew, still the moments dwindling down to few.

Still the shade, still the light, still the heron flapping wings for flight.

Fill the air, fill the sea, fill the forests falling rain to be.

In the background, it will go on. There is comfort in what will come has gone.

Still the orb, still the glass, still the lion leaping through the grass.

Still the dream, still the heart, still the lover praying not to part.

@bernardtwindwil I find comfort in the things that do not change, like the seasons, so I wrote Still the Dawn. It is the title poem of my book, Still the Dawn: Poems and Ballads. I am pleased that you like it.

Incredibly beautiful in the verse and stanza structure as well as the rhyme scheme. The wording lent a lyrical characteristic that kept tempo all the way through the poem. I loved it.Great poem!!!!!!!!!
