First Light Verse

Rabbits were bounding around in the yard, and

I heard a few deer munching leaves near my garden. 

Boy and girl squirrels flit and twirled up oak trees. 

This morning’s first light brought me sights such as these.

This morning’s first light was so bright and inviting

 that I thought I might set it right down, in writing, 

because I knew you should be given fair warning 

in case you also like first lights, like this morning’s.
