COCKCROW AT DAWN

By Josie Whitehead

Cockcrow at Dawn

Awaken the morning you loud crowing cock,
Pierce the night’s silence ahead of the clock.
     Throw your voice soaring across the pale sky,
     Dispatching night’s gloom with a hearty goodbye.

You embrace early morning’s gold halcyon rays
And stretch forth your neck and proclaim this bright day.
     Your clarion call heralds a magnificent dawn,
     As you hail with true gladness the arrival of morn.
