On Morning’s Light

On morning’s light your love arrives,

New strength and mercy to revive.

My heart you mend, my thirst you slake,

You offer peace and I partake. You help me thrive.

 

On morning’s light your ode resounds.

In birdsong your sweet voice abounds.

Your whisper floats on gentle breeze

And hearing puts my soul at ease, on solid ground.

 

On morning’s light your Word is dear;

Though read before, is crystal clear.

When once I struggled, now I see.

My mind, your Spirit’s broken free; I feel you near.

 

On morning’s light your warmth pervades

Like yeast in dough or light in shade,

Surrounding me in quiet calm,

A lovely still-life, real-life psalm, a serenade.

 

On morning’s light you smell so sweet.

My cup is full, I feel complete.

You are my Life, my God, my Friend,

My Savior, Prince until the end, until we meet.

 

On morning’s light I cast a smile

Although it will be quite a while

Until I see you face to face

And run to you in warm embrace, I’ll sit awhile

With you.

  1. Interesting how you wrote it. i sure would like to hear how you read it with the “extra” words at the end of each stanza/verse.

    1. It’s a classic poetry form called a Florette. Each stanza is 8-8-8-12. It’s in iambic meter; the rhythm continues to flow through the last line. It’s become my favorite form to write. 🙂

      1. I see. We might have discussed that back in high school, but I have forgotten all those poetry forms. I just do free form, however I like…Glad to learn from you 🙂
