Robin calls across the way,
“Wake up, my friend,
embrace the day.”
And Sunshine’s dancing, prancing beams
bid me to follow,
dismiss my dreams.
Still one more darling friend I meet
once dressed and walking down the street.
She snatches at my coat and hat,
ruffles my hair–
I don’t like that.
But one thing I can’t fail to mention,
she wakes me up,
grabs my attention,
uplifts my gaze
expands my heart,
and sets me right before we part.
