“Awakening,” Ensign, July 1983, 7

Awakening

The sheer organza rays of light

Lace round the earth before the sun

To layer ebony of night.

The finger forms of willows shade

The phantoms near the windowsills,

Dim-fading into shapes the day

Will craft to amber daffodils.

Caressed by pink-down comforter,

I drift awake to shadow line

Of spirit mirrored back to me,

A subtle haze of the divine.

The Lord divided light from dark,

But left this moment for his man

To join in uncreated mists

And mold his hopes, awaiting dawn.
