Kaleidoscope 
(Double Rondelet)

Birth of a day,
Happiness of new born around,
Birth of a day.
Sprinkling colours you have your way,
Each morning as I watch spell bound ,
Cannot measure the treasure found,
Birth of a day!

It’s a new day,
Darkness quietly exiting,
It’s a new day.
Colours galore, you have your say.
Gentle breeze softly caressing,
Pleasant memories surfacing,
It’s a new day!
