Now face the east
Stand in the light of
the rising sun
And know the peace
of morning
The coming of a new day
Joy at beginnings
Not sorrow at endings

Avalon lies west
And it is too soon to go there
That is for the ending of your days
And not before

Now is the time to
Look for new things
To inhale the scent of spring
To cast off the pall
Of darkness

Open your arms to the warmth
Of a new day.
