A Hymn for Ash Wednesday

A Hymn for Ash Wednesday

Sing a song of morning
rosy cheeked dawn
and blue eyed skies
birds and  freshly
made coffee and hot
baked bread
Sing a song of morning

Sing a song of mourning
drawn gray faces
and eyes full of tears
dirges and freshly
dug earth and cold
cold ground
Sing a song of mourning
