A New Day

open yer eyes boy!
open them buggers wide

a new day's a dawnin
the sun is at the gate
foot on the block
waitin to blaze
~waiting for you

the storms of yesterday
but a remembrance
while the lazy wheat and
eager flowers in youth
mime happily to the wind

rise up! rise up!
let's be on our way
breaking the bonds of gravity
feet to the quick
high stepping eager hope

we can do it once again
if we can forget why we stopped

turn away from barkers and clowns
throw stardust pound to the penny

so many days have been stolen
too many a day surrendered, so
today, we'll turn this ship downwind
and just let er ride,
forgetting the chains
that stole our once
easy drift
