a place called morning..


"Will there really be a morning?
Is there such a thing as day?
Could I see it from the mountains
If I were as tall as they?

Has it feet like water-lilies?
Has it feathers like a bird?
Is it brought from famous countries
Of which I have never heard?

Oh, some scholar! Oh, some sailor!
Oh, some wise man from the skies!
Please to tell a little pilgrim
Where the place called morning lies!"

That is so beautiful! It makes me less frightened to be that "little pilgrim.! Causes me to reflect on where the answer really lies. Allows me to focus on this pilgrims goal, that heavenly sunrise. Thank you. Cathy
