Brand New Day: An Original Poem

I worked on a number of different versions of the following poem last week. One version has five more stanzas. I decided I liked the four-stanza version best.

Brand New Day
by Elaine Magliaro

The sun arose. The stars all fled.
A sleepy moon slipped off to bed.

The dark sky paled to baby blue
As nighttime disappeared from view.

Then dawn put on her yellow gown
And danced a jig all over town.

Loud roosters crowed, mourning doves cooed:
“It’s a brand new day. Our world’s renewed.”
