The wee hours before dawn. (Lilibonelle)

by Steven Beesley   Aug 20, 2005


The wee hours before the dawn
Small birds join in a chorus of song
A sweet and natural symphony
That makes your heart want to sing

Small birds join a chorus of song
Nature in it's awe, the air so fresh begins to warm
The rising sun, announcing another day
Fresh dew renews all plants in every way

A sweet and natural symphony
The tiny snail goes about it's way
Oblivious to how time is fleeting by
Content with his own slow pace

That makes your heart want to sing
Fresh breeze making all the branches swing
Dropping dew upon the lawn
The wee hours before the dawn.
