Westerly’s Awakening

Early Morning in Working Westerly

In Westerly's hush, where dawn paints the rail,
A quietude hangs, a story to exhale.
The taproom sleeps, its revelry long done,
While gears in the station sigh, their day begun.

Across the tracks, where industry takes hold,
A plume of smoke unfurls, a tale untold.
The service station stirs, a sleepy-eyed machine,
Yawning in the light, a day's work yet unseen.

No song of birds yet breaks the frosty air,
Only the distant clank, a rhythmic prayer.
The town awakens slow, a slumber yet to break,
But in the quietude, a future soon to wake.

Here, history breathes, etched in brick and steel,
Of lives entwined, the dreams that they reveal.
A salty tang hangs heavy in the breeze,
A timeless chiming rung beneath the morning trees.

So leave us stand here, in this quiet space,
And watch the town ignite, with purpose in its pace.
For in this Westerly morn, a spirit yet resides,
A testament to toil, where hope and labor confides.
