First Morning

September 18, 2012
Rockport, Massachusetts


The sun rose visibly at such a distance over the sea,
that the cloud-bank in the horizon,
which at first concealed him,
was not perceptible until he had risen high behind it,
and plainly broke and dispersed it, like an arrow.
But as yet I looked at him as rising over land,
and could not, without an effort,
realize that he was rising over the sea.

6:17 a.m.
The view from our balcony, and moments later, from Front Beach.
There's no sleeping-late, on a morning like this !
