The day has been long.
And on the cusp of yet another,
Dawn will almost break,
But not my flagging, weary muse.
Though there are only street lamps,
And dark clouds marring my view
Of the beloved mountains on the North Shore,
I know I will see them soon.
So I have passed this final test,
Now let me put these last words to rest.
Another challenging 24 hours, I must confess,
My marathon is done and now, I convalesce.
