Adverb Poems Main Poetry Index

Softly the dawn draws back curtains of night.

Softly the sun brings to earth its bright light.

    Softly the blackbird’s song welcomes the dawn

    And I quietly awaken and give my first yawn.


Softly my mind comes to life and I think.

Softly my eyes slowly open and blink.

    The alarm’s not gone off and now I am late

     And I cannot think “softly” when I feel irate.
