Silver mist lingering in the air
The sky streaked in warm shades
Melting pink, yellow, orange

The sun shyly peeks
From behind the grand mountains
And brings back the warmth
Stolen by the night

The stars vanish
Like bright candles blowing out
And Earth is brought back to life
By the call of the waking birds

What great joy it brings
To watch the world awaken.
