While the sun still lies in repose
            just below the rim of the rested earth
and stars yet dot the sky, winking eyes
            watching with care their fading domain

God’s hand revolving the world with ease
            breaks the dawn but the stars persist
in their shining as if asking “let us stay.”

But God has plans for a new day and
            the crescent moon on the cobalt winter sky
smiles shyly and fades along with the stars
            and God’s new day is born without weeping
