Dawn was having one of those days
When, looking through the morning haze
I realized, she could not find
Just the dress she had in mind.

First she appeared in soft dove gray;
After due considering, tossed that away
And donned a lovely rose-striped mauve
That she was particularly fond of,
With an accent belt of gold lame–
Decided that was just not Today.

She quickly changed to a blue and white float
With puffy cloud-pearls at the throat.
No time remained for another change
For Sun was coming into range.
Off she hurried in her latest robe,
Chasing Night around the globe.
