Bright dawn, aglow with rosy blush-ablaze
appears as dainty bride or powdered fey.
She blows a fairy dewdrop stormy haze
that plays o’er misty flowers blissful sway.
This sparkling day sends light to kiss the face
of groom who grows beneath the shadows low.
He blooms a brilliant hue; a purple trace.
A bed of violets bewitch her beau.
The moon has slipped away beyond the night
as early beams entrance her wedding guests.
They turn their heads to greet the waltzing light
adorns the periwinkle’s silken vest.
Triumphant, golden march, as morning breaks.
Her mystical communion reawakes.
An AUBADE is a morning love song (as opposed to an evening serenade), or a song or poem about lovers separating at dawn. Also defined as “a song or instrumental composition concerning, accompanying, or evoking daybreak”.
