Dawn rises from the dark,

Tosses back her streaming hair,

Slips on silent tiptoe 'cross the bedroom,

Glowing in her robe of rainbow fire.


Dawn greets me in the kitchen,

Sunny-bright as daffodils,

And I can only stop and stare. I'm dazzled.

And in that marveling breath my heart is filled.


Chorus (or bridge)

Dawn brings me morning just by smiling,

Winsome as a kitten's capering play.

River's edge or city street, my wildling,

Draws me to her side, and there I'll stay.


Dawn, through the day 'til evening,

Dawn, my peace through dark or fear,

Dawn, in all the moments of my lifetime--

Loving her is all I need or care.
