Just as I settled into the woods to wait
When the fallen leaves were crisp with frost
When the air was cold and stung my skin
When the trickling of a nearby stream
Carried the tune of water to all that would hear
I saw her begin to reveal the world.

Slow ascent as if to sneak up on me
She was introduced in blue
Then came grey that like a rainbow,
A kaleidoscope of color,
Transformed to pink and more.

Like a ghost she rose
Not wanting to be seen
Until she could conceal no more
A gift withheld throughout the night
In radiant rays she burst into sight.

A sliver of crimson
A sphere of red
An unbridled flame
That drove the cold away.

So brilliant I could no longer gaze
She rose in majesty
Unveiling a new day.
