A New Day 

    This is a beautiful day!
    Outside with the dawn
    Traffic has not overwhelmed
    The celebration of birds
    As it does any day except Sunday
    Nor poisoned the sweet air
    With petrol and diesel fumes.
    In the West is turquoise, and violet,
    Overhead a deep blue,
    And in the East a surging light
    I would enjoy better on the scented hills
    or the ocean shores around us
    But even here the vibrant light
    Cleans me of dark dreams
    And wakens new hope
    We are always renewed
    Cares fade before greater light
    And for a breath there is time to play
    A model aircraft is trapped
    In the branches of a tree.
