Autumn Dawning at Six in the Morning

Still dark at 6am, winter draws on,
I wait for the dawn and look up beyond,
Listen for the chorus that can only
Be seconds away. Come birds I’m lonely.

Hark? Do you hear them? The birds! Warbling birds.
They wake! They wake, wake and greet the new day,
Good morning, morning they cheerily say,
Wake sleepy world though the morning is grey.

  1. Makes me think of the moments i sit and write at 5 or 6 in the morning with a loud blackbird for company, so i feel this and the solitude


  2. I saw the timing of this post and it just happened to be 6 a m where I am so I read your 6 a m. I have no birds outside my door this morning but an insistent cat who wants to be fed. Enjoy your blog.


    • Lovely to be at 6am and to read about it! It was 6am here when it was written 🙂

      That naughty cat … did it frighten the birds away? 😉

      Thank you and nice to see you visit Louann.


  3. Polly–beautiful dawn song! Morning here is gray and raining (we need it, to be sure).


  4. I should listen for those birds more. But I use a white noise machine, and it drowns everything out. Now I see what I’m missing. 🙂


  5. heh-heh … the birds don’t mind Carrie ~ you get your sleep ~ they’re going to be singing anyway ~ heh-heh 🙂


  6. I do wish I was a morning person…. 😉


  7. Not to worry … those lovely little birds sing anyway … you can catch up with them when you have time 😉


  8. Beautiful! We have a very loud bird that starts calling at about 4am – then it seems to vanish at about 7am just when it is time to get up!


  9. “Autumn Dawning at Six in the Morning” is a cheerful poem to match the cute line of little birds in a row…


  10. Empty Nest Syndrome here … the babies have grown and moved on … the sparrow family, robins, hummingbirds, all gone …. At least my best hummingbird buddy flew into the garage to squeak “thank you and goodbye,” face to face, before heading out. 😉


  11. How fantastic to have a hummingbird in the garden and even better when it’s a polite one! 🙂
