The Silence Before Dawn

December 19, 2008
By Lauren Arsena, Durham, NC

I can't stop thinkng
About that wonderous time,
That split-second before dawn

So peaceful,
So relaxed,
So silent,
It haunts my thoughts
This split-second before dawn

I can't help but wonder
What makes the magic
Of the silence before dawn

The author's comments:
It was dark and all I could hear were the crickets outside my bedroom. I wondered if they would ever be silent, so I wrote this poem.
