Sunrise in Madrid

I like window ledges
Because in Madrid I would crawl up on theirs
About half an hour before sunrise
Every day
And I would watch the city be born anew
Every day
First the birds
Then some cars
Then the crosswalks
And the people
Walking past in silence
Or charlando with their friends
The stone of the buildings slowly lit up
My ledge grew warmer
I leaned out as far as I could to soak it all in
I was like a child on Christmas
My gift was pure beauty
Free
Every day
