Wake up! Shouts the rooster
for dawn is upon us.
Wake up! Chirps the bird,
for my breakfast is waiting.
Wake up! Blooms the flower
for the sun blesses me with warmth
Wake up! Yips the puppy
for I must investigate the outdoors
Wake up! Drips the coffee
for it’s time to awaken your body.
Wake up! Squeals the child
for I”m hungry & the world has yet to be explored.
for sleep misses out on a new day.
