Dawn of a New Day

Only a Matter of Time

Fog bending over the hillside.

The evening creatures returning

As others awake for the day.

Sunshine begins to cover every nook and cranny.

Each leaf casts a new shadow,

But continuously changing

As the night beings to fade to day.

Sparrows begin their sweet melodies

Just as they have done every morning.

The sound of the creek calms the soul

And promises of a fun day ahead.

Pitter patter of little ones fill the cabin.

The calm serene scene comes to an end

As curious minds begin a new day.
