Debonair Dawn

by Philip F De Pinto

Debonair Dawn
For an encore
You've taken on the form
Of light sublime
As was your wont to do
And you climb divinely as a tendril
To all such places
In need of your blithe assistance

Forerunner to suns
All capitulate to your illustrating how its done
Which leave none to wonder for long
How you manage still in this dire silence
To unfurl your luminance beyond the adage
As will have us curse not the darkness but ignite the light

At present you send your emissaries - the dewdrops
To wink and flicker on the windowpanes
And on the eyelashes
Of every lad and lass
Lazing in the grass
Two who could not
The evening long
Locate their shadows for a song

Arrived Dawn
Debonair as ever
Such are cast
For all to poke playful fun
Including one
Who from such pairing was removed
Vying for the affection
Of the lass laying in the grass
Who one might say
Failed to see the sun in me
Enough to ignite shadows
Something to adore in his paramour
Dawn you lift from your horizon each night
If only to illustrate
That three is a crowd
Whether they be shadows or light


Author's Note: not because I owe you one, Dawn, but you deserve one for reason your lights are prelude to the dark going out.

Fun playful tribute to the Dawn, Philip.
