Just after dawn
My eyes pop awake
Whether sleepy or rested
I never sleep late

Settle into the day
While the dark coffee brews
Wash the stray dishes
Listen to the news

Just before dark
My early arising
Starts catching up
I settle my striving

self in the armchair
And pour out some wine
Leave the dishes for morning
Put my feet up
Lay my head back

It will be fine.
