The Sun Itself Says

I’m a little late for the early quadrille!

She wakes up when the sun itself says

It’s too early,

Even though the sun said it was

Perfect timing before —


She goes back to bed after twenty

Minutes, wanting to

Sleep until next summer, but

The sun’s not as sleepy as she is.

  1. Getting up in the darkness never feels right to me…yet I must and sometimes return home in it too. Makes me feel guilty for grumbling at the morning sun on lazy summer weekends.
