Hail Hyperion’s Son

By brian francis

Morning comes with a glistening beam
Helios peering over darkness’ crest
Color awakens and brightens the eye
Another day has begun

With coffee brewing the senses awake
And the birds take flight from their rest
Nighttime recedes fleeing the hooves
Of Helios and his steeds

Sparrows singing welcome the day
As others join in a chorus of song
Dew dampened grasses, sparkling,
stretch toward the light of his rays

And I, sitting here, in the breaking of day
Embrace the warmth he offers the world
Breathing in that life giving gift
Pleasure giving worship to his might
