I have checked the clock

I have checked the clock more times
than blinking
in an effort to meet the hour
of dawn’s arrival.
First, the witching hour came
leaving magic at my door
a bird flew past
then two more
a cricket cricked
leaves gathered dew
a spider spun a frame
for the rising view
and in quiet
unattended by all but
nature’s whims
did the sun glimmer at
the edge and let
day begin.
