The day started at sunrise

Waiting for Ophelia to arrive

Sand from the Sahara

Filled the morning sky

Giving it a blood red sheen

Rays of the sun 

Through an opaque sky

Simply could not be seen

Then came the wind

From across the sea

And suddenly a change

It cleared the dusky sky

Until sunbeams beat down

From a clear blue sky

Bringing with it feelings

Of great joy 

Lifting spirits high
