Winter Sunrise



Winter Sunrise, by Walter Conrad


As the sun wakes up the night

Over the chill fields of white


Through the solemn, naked tree,

Bereft of its summer green.

Mauve tinged heavens give it sheen.


Lo, a small and brilliant fire

Rising, rising ever higher,

With a promise warming me:


Thou, the goal of my desire,

A new day has come with thee.
