Dawning of Dreams

In tribute to Burton Lorne Cummings…


Morning lightness in the shadow of dreams

Set in low o’er a broken horizon

Thoughts became witness to brighter of days

Pooled memory in distant shallows upstream

Dawn’s laggard coming cast shadows of mind

In the autumn of summer’s discontent

Winds of phantasm’s abandonment swirl

Days they would beckon as night falls behind


Lo dreams that would surely last forever

As tide’s rhythmic lumber unending flow

In the spirit of longing steadfastly

Encounter reality’s endeavor

Life in all its metaphoric splendour

As mercurial verse on open seas

Song notes serenade in cadent whisper

Our heart and soul harmonize surrender
