Silence preceding the moment of morning,

dawn on the negev desert

Dawn on the Negev Desert in Israel

Nature is napping ere dawning of day,

Sunrise from our kitchen window in Praia da Luz Portugal

dim glow the stars after night sky adorning,

Last night we attended a concert called Mosaics performed by the Sonolux Choir at Young United Church.  One of the many beautiful songs they sang was Sunrise Carol by Daniel Elder.  I loved the words.  They reminded me of some of the sunrises I have watched.
