One Day in Summer (sonnet)

Cool fog controls the size of this soft world;
This day as grey as I am sleepy-eyed
Gives branches space, but just enough to dance
In breezes flowing like a gentle tide.
By noon this summer day will shine and burn
As if this sleepy morning never was–
As creatures of the gardens wing and sing
And bumbles, honeys, even wasps will buzz.
When nightfall comes, and come it will though late,
If we remember to look to the North,
Aurora Borealis’ magic light,
They say, will crown the night as it shines forth.
Can one day hold so much magnificence
And yet be greeted with our complacence?
