Poem – Welcoming the Dawn

Well hi there! I hope all of you are doing well. 🙂 This past week has been pretty normal for me with school and whatnot… Except for one thing… I went to see the musical Hamilton!! You may remember my excitement in this blog post from over 6 months ago. 😀 Finally, after many months of waiting, the day came this past Thursday.  I went to London and actually sat in the Victoria Palace Theatre and saw the soundtrack that I had listened to so many times come to life and be acted in front of me. And IT WAS AMAZING!! I could gush over it for basically this entire blog post, but to spare the readers who have no idea what I’m on about, I’ll just suffice it to say that I absolutely loved it and highly recommend the experience. 😉 

Now onto the actual content of this post. 😀 This week in school we were studying one of the early paintings by Monet, entitled Impression, Sunrise. I thought it very beautiful and so I was quite pleased when I was tasked to write a poem about it for a school assignment. I hope you all enjoy it!


impression, sunrise

but for the lapping of water
and splashing of oars
dipping in and out
of the sun-glowed water

everywhere to be found
in the mist that is silently slipping away
in the water that is quietly slapping against
dark-hued wooden vessels

rising above the dark of smog
haloed in smoke and mist
trailing light behind like a rich
robe of royalty

we watch
as the world awakens
finding itself turned from a dusky pauper
to a flaxen-crowned queen of light


Let’s chat! Do you enjoy art? Do you have any favourite artists? Also, do I have any Hamil-fans among my readers? 😀
