The mornings are getting darker now
I really don’t want to wake;
In the dark dawn hours
I much prefer to sleep.
Alas there is this thing called work
It is not based on sunshine.
The school bell rings at 8:30am
I have to have time to prep
I live a fair way away from work
There simply are no options
Thus dark dawn hours are closing in
And Winter’s chill is creeping
It’ll be a few months of rising up
In dark and cold conditions
Conversly becasue I am perverse
I much more enjoy my sleep ins
Listening to the world awake
At 6 is much more reasonable
Than summer time when birds waking up
Slip back to 4am.
So whilst the Monday to Friday dawn
Is not the one I am liking,
Dark dawn hours
Smiles will light across my face.
