This morning it was early to rise ; I work as a carer taking a young special needs boy to and fro school.This morning he was going on his school trip to Chester Zoo which is up in North Wales.

We had to get him to school which is over 30 miles away by 7.00am; therefore I was up at 4.45 am and after all the usual get ready routine I had 30 minutes to spare;hence this poem.

I hope you enjoy.


On the birth of the morn

Still darkness on the skies

Tentatively touching

With a delicate surprise.


The receding of dawn

With an innocent peep

Swirls as it whispers

With secrets to keep.


Each leaf waves to shadows

Turning on its head

Each flower’s head bowed

Still snuggled in their bed.


A bird does look out

From it’s warm cosy sleep

Ruffles his feathers

Nothing more than that peep.


One alley tom cat

Demanding a mention

Howls in determination

His obvious intention.


But I hear music

Which sings in my heart

The sunshine my soul

Beckons a brand new start.
