AT BREAK OF DAY

At break of day
I open my arms like wings
And rise with the sun
I stretch across the azure
The rays of my joy
I melt into its golden disc
By imitation learning
The secret of its eternity
I paint the firmament blue
I make the hearts
Of all who awaken dance
And each evening I learn how to descend
Coloring in a gorgeous farewell
The clouds of the horizon
I learn how to die away in the darkness
And to find the strength to rekindle from within
A new dawn
