A Saturday in a Life

I saw the dawn today oh boy
A ring of fire filled morning sky
Yellows push reds purples into gray
Sunlight fought 
Clouds refused to give

I saw crows flying north today
South winds pushed them on their way
From the bank I listened quite in vain
Nothing
Silence of the cranes

I saw some ducks today oh boy
Cinnamon colored behind the reeds
Beaver’s felled trees lay on banks
Dam broken 
Breached by man

I saw the first flower bloomed today
Opened when sunlight slipped through gray
Yellow pushed through leaves dried brown
Closed up early 
Before sun went down

I saw the dusk today oh boy
Pink in the east slipped through cloudy gray
Winds died darkness all round 
Hoot owls call 
Night back to life
