Softly - An Adverb Poem

Softly the dawn draws back curtains of night.
Softly the sun brings to earth its bright light.
   Softly the blackbird’s song welcomes the dawn
   And I quietly awaken and give my first yawn.

Softly my mind comes to life and I think.
Softly my eyes slowly open and blink.
   The alarm’s not gone off and now I am late
    And I cannot think 'softly' when I feel *irate.

* irate:- feeling or characterized by great anger.
