Still in keeping with The Rubaiyat, by Omar Khayyam- in the previous post-the second quatrain reads like this :

Dreaming when Dawn’s Left Hand was in the Sky
I heard a Voice within the Tavern cry,
“Awake, my Little ones, and fill the Cup
Before Life’s Liquor in its Cup be dry.”

© Omar Khayyam (Tr. FitzGerald)

This was my inspiration for the following haiku:

Dawn stretches and yawns
Clouds blink stars out of the skies
A new day in play
