Dawn is Anticipation

By Dave Hanks

Dawn is anticipation
And freshness and new born joy
	Dusk is melancholy
	And remembrance and opportunity now past
Spring is like dawn
So full of newness 
And dreams unchecked
	Autumn is the dusk
	With things that were
	And things that might have been
The times of freshness
Are so short and fleeting
And energy once possessed which seemingly was never to dissolve
And with a mindset of youthful foolishness
	But the time of twilight brings a yearning
	To relive those moments of unrelenting vigor 
	One is fortunate
	If one’s psyche allows an eternal spring
No matter the situation or the season
And perpetual youth
Combined with wisdom
Lights one’s existence
