Enough of Slumber

Wake-up! Wake-up!

enough of slumber
the trampled darkness
of night shatters
to the call of sunrise
— the language of morning

Wake-up! Wake-up!

hear the sunlit strands
of burning coral
land upon the clay
beyond the hills and belfries
— beyond the eastern rims

Wake-up! Wake-up!

feast upon the vaulted sky
that brims with colour enchantment
and sweet flowers’ breath
— and hear the humble hope of drums
wake-up my heart
