Are You A Morning Person?

Oooops, that’s one of those nanoseconds where you have

pressed the post button, and then realized what you’ve done.

Oh well too late now, ‘specially for that bird.


Morning Poem


I woke early one morning

The earth lay cool and still

When suddenly a tiny bird

Perched on my window sill,


He sang a song so lovely

So carefree and so gay,

That slowly all my troubles

began to slip away.


He sang of far of places

of laughter and of fun.

It seemed his very trilling

brought up the morning sun.


I stirred beneath the covers

Crept slowly out of bed,

Then gently shut the window

And crushed his f****** head.


I am not a morning person

Hi Peter ~~ What a lovely story ~ poor little bird!!!!
And we know you are not a morning person ~ there really was no need to kill that bird. Like me, you are a night owl and we cannot be both and survive. Cheers.

I would commit that to memory but it would have limited application in the type of speaking I do. Having said that, GREAT POEM Peter.
Thank You!

I am not a morning person either, Peter, but I sometimes have to be.

BTW, if you click publish when you didn't mean to, just go back into blogger and edit that post to click draft again, with an earlier time. It will go back into the draft file.

That's a kick! I am more of a morning person than I am a night person. I'm not one of those irritating chipper morning people, just one that prefers to get up and get my stuff done. LOL

I don't like getting up early, but when I do, I not grumpy.
I wake up happy, so I woudn't have killed that birdy.
