Awaken to a rainy day,
A little thunder, but that's OK...
It rumbles, but from far away
And babies sleep late when it's gray.
So let the dog out, feed the cat,
The morning chores- some this and that.
Then put the coffee on, and stat!
Fill up my cup, add milk (nonfat).
That morning calm, that early still;
The quiet lingers 'round until
Kiddos stir and house will fill
With sleepy voices (sometimes shrill!).
Our morning rhythm, pulse and beat
A firm foundation for little feet
And stories, memories so sweet-
A daily comfort on repeat.
