Sunrise Over Philadelphia
By Don Iannone

It started as a pale orange glow
in the changing eastern sky,
reminding me of a slowly melting creamsicle,
The sun rose over Philadelphia this morning
with the splendor of Shubert and the grace of Mozart,
allowing me to see the city, and myself,
in a promising new light,
This elegant solar display is a sign,
of renewed hope, and grace rediscovered,
Philadelphia needs to shine
under a bright morning sun,
Too many days are dark and
colorless for too many,
The sun, like an eternal spring,
I know, is always there,
Some days we just don't see it,
It makes me happy to see this fine city
bask in the orange glow of a fresh new day.
