New Poem: Morning Song

Sort of a kid's lyric, I think....another case of I had a rhythm pop into my head, and this is what came of it.


Morning Song


Time to rise, sleepy head,
Morning's here, get out of bed,
Jam and butter for your bread –
Time to do.
What will happen this fine day?
What new thing comes, I cannot say,
But something good will come your way --
The day's brand new.

Time to rise, sunshine,
Not a day to frown or pine,
Birds are sitting on a line
To sing for you.
Time to rise, sleepy head,
Morning's here, get out of bed,
Jam and butter for your bread –
Time to do.

I like this a lot. It has a kind of nursery rhyme feel to it.

Yeah, it does...I used to collect kid lit written between the 1880s and the 1950s, and it felt like the old kid lit to me, even as I was writing it.

I don't think it's gonna happen..I tolerate haiku used that way, but basically I don't really like to work with the forms she picked. It's possible something may spring up, but Poetry Muse says don't count on it.

Hmph. *folds arms and pouts*
Heroic couplets were big fun.
