‘Morning Song’ by Mandy Moe Pwint Tu The Society March 31, 2014 Beauty, Poetry 5 Comments O sweet be this soft morning’s song As golden mist on earth descends And skylarks trill an hour long While gently this wild river bends: The daisies rise to kiss the sun Fond lover of dear Mother Earth! For now the war with night is won What better cause for joy and mirth? Courting the flowers, the butterflies Drink deep of sweetest nectar-dew: While pixies watch with peering eyes A scene that never would be new: The squirrels scurry up the trees And chitter-chatter though the day: And out upon the greenest lees I might espy the deer at play! Music of melodious note Doth grace this breezy morning air – Like madrigals that Pan devotes To Mother Nature’s glory fair! O sweet is this soft morning’s song Which falls upon my eager ears: As thrushes trill an hour long I find dispelled my foolish fears! Mandy Moe Pwint Tu is a Burmese poet studying in Australia.
