In Sweetest Slumber


I listen in
as these birds
whistle their songs-
their melodies soothing
so sleep will stream
steadily along.
Then the memories fade
like the day’s light
to the back of my mind.

But, the alarm clock
sounds far too soon
after I close my eyes
to sleep- even my dreams
cannot keep at bay
the sound that shakes
my slumber and
calls me to wake
with the dawn of morning.
