Poem 101: In the Morning Dew

...By James Spruell

The darkest night
where no light shines,
is but birth
to morning’s light.

From within this pit
reaches out morning's dew,
darkness to fade
into the sun’s first rays,
to bring forth
the greater light

In the dew of the morning
created you I,
a song to sing
and gifts to bring,
a light to shine.
