Morning Gold

by cricketjeff on June 30, 2008.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

Birds know the secret
every morning
they sing to greet the gold

Men sleep

Flowers know the secret
petals open
faces turn to gold

Most men sleep

But a few
see the silver and gold
burst onto the Earth
we know
it is all
worthwhile
