‘Early to bed’
Early to bed and early to rise:
If that would make me wealthy and wise
I’d rise at daybreak, cold or hot,
And go back to bed at once. Why not?
I had to awaken early today to fix the car.
Meanwhile the gracious Jama over at Jama's Alphabet Soup has me Shiver Me Timbers hoisted up the flagpole.
And Poetry Friday is hosted over at Laura Salas.
