I hear a twittering of birds,
And now they burst in song.
How sweet, although it wants the words!
It shall not want them long,
For I will set some to the note
Which bubbles from the thrush's throat.
O jewelled night, that reign'st on high,
Where is thy crescent moon?
Thy stars have faded from the sky,
The sun is coming soon.
The summer night is passed away,
Sing welcome to the summer day.
Robert Fuller Murray
I have to say that dawn has become one of my favorite times of the day...yes, this from someone who has admittedly been a night person all their life. The city still quiet, the light in the sky a sort of grayish-blue as the world rises out of darkness, and there is just something special about being awoken by the cheerful song of the birds rather than the harsh shrill of the alarm clock. Dawn signifies rebirth, new beginnings. It is an ideal time for cleansing oneself--physically, spiritually, and emotionally.
Don't get me wrong. I haven't forsaken my beloved night. It will always remain my special time. There is something magical about standing outdoors under a star-filled sky. I find comfort in the dark; it gives me a sense of inner peace. The darkness is needed. It is our chance to recharge. The day tires us, but it is the night that rejuvenates us and makes us whole again.
Maidens Dancing In Moonlight
Then, as the broad moon rose on high,
The maidens stood the altar nigh;
And some in graceful measure
The well-loved spot danced round,
With lightsome footsteps treading
The soft and grassy ground.
What is your favorite time of day? Are you a morning person or an evening person?
Not much going on in my life. Still trying to iron out this issue with my health care. Work has been extremely stressful, and I am trying, oh so hard, to keep my stress level down. Something has to give there. This lack of boundary issues with clients is too much for anyone to have to deal with on a daily basis. The AC is down again as well. That certainly doesn't help; with stress. It's only our floor and our half of the floor that doesn't work. The men who take care of it don't seem to know what's wrong with it. Well, in that case stop being so cheap and call someone else.
Sharon, a Canary Melon is similar to a Honeydew only it is bright yellow on the outside and a pale flesh on the inside. They are common in the Asian countries, so, with my living a block away from little Chinatown, it is easy to get one. They are so juicy and super sweet. I totally love them.
By the way, has anyone been watching the new Dallas? What do you think of it?
