early in the morning

crescent moon sharp upon the plate of sky

one hour before the lazy winter sun

signal that my long day is well begun

with clarity that shows the air is dry

and cold at this still moment no birds fly

while urgent humans have the need to run

up the dark street for health instead of fun

as if the end was one they could defy

out to the world we go each blessed day

to find our pain and reach another dark

of calm oblivion and short time of rest

all the time knowing that we've lost our way

been baffled and come short of the true mark

in our misunderstanding of the test
