changing of the guard
melodic night frogs retire
trilling birds arise

Thank you Jingle
This is awesome! The juxtaposition from night to day, and the comparison of changing from night to morn, flows very well. The words are tight, none wasted, with strong imagery of the sunrise. The mention of the guards uses the underlying metaphor of nature’s participation matching man’s need to participate in his own life, guard nature, and stop to “watch the sunrise” exuding well from the poetry. Well done!
