The Good of Morning
For the fingers that coax music from the keys,@04/24/2020 Carol Welch
Contrasting with a rustic western song,
commonplace events, that make tomorrow’s memories,
Things we encountered, learning right from wrong.
The gratitude that nudges waking soul,
To sing of the glory of the world,
A day to face, expected tasks unroll,
Sleep exchanged for sunrise bright unfurled.
So, as the skillful fingers strike the keys,
And lyrics in a deep voice sing the truth,
It’s in today's living, diligence or ease,
In a spiritual remembered from our youth.
