Morning is the joy of crowing
the joy that crows
the crowing joy

Crowing is the joy of morning
the joy that mourns
the morning joy

Morning is the crow of joying
the crow that joys
the joying crow

Joy is the crow of morning
the crow that mourns
the morning crow

Four gorgeous ways (12 glorious ways) to say it's a glorious morning--I like them all-- but there is something particularly cool about "Morning is the crow of joying" that says morning is like the voice of happy gods.

Great stuff, poet.

Hi Carol. Not sure it deserves the reference to Stevens (if that is indeed what you meant), but thanks so much for the read.
