For the Eyes of Wiser Risers Only


So, just in case we’re thinkin’ while we’re snugly sleepin’ in
That in the grand design of time we didn’t miss a thing
We ought to reconsider while we sweetly dream or snore
Beyond the bliss of ignorance God opens up a door
…and for those wiser risers He spreads out a wondrous feast
A decadent arrangement of daybreak upon the east
While dreamers dream and snorers snore and lazy loafers laze
Beyond that pile of blankets God sets waking skies ablaze

The only reason I can write this is because I had to get up early to finish some canning or I too may be among those getting up later, yawning, stretching and saying to myself, ‘well, at least I didn’t miss any sky-action this morning’.
