Sonnet to the Rosy Dawn

The golden chariot of rosy dawn

Appears over the deep indigo sea

Her team of swift radiant steeds drive on

As sweet serenity swirls around me

Eternal goddess bringer of daylight

Arrives upon a salty perfumed breeze

Bright visage scatters the demons of night

While her warm embrace sets hearts at ease

Eos, shining sister of sun and moon

The blind bard Homer praised your saffron robe

Swirling zephyrs spread light over the dune

Your luminescence forever sweeps the globe

This morning’s meeting upon sparkling sands

Opened a blazing path to divine lands
