A Breakfast In Bed

Woke up this morning
and I could see
was my breath in front of me.
Dawn had awoken
without the sun,
just a bone freezing wind.
I decided my best option
was to stay were I was,
after all it was my day off.
I got up long enough
to put the kettle one,
made myself some cereals
and a very hot drink.
Then scurried back to bed.
I had a breakfast in bed
made by myself.
In bed, I was going to stay
for another two hours or more
as I had nothing really to get up for.

    Well that certainly sounds cozy, I certainly agree with JoJo and Allison, a heater would be nice indeed. Very nice poem David, a big (10) from me.

    Strange - yesterday I began a poem called 'a slow day'. It had the same sort of theme as this one (isn't finished yet either) . But I agree that it's wonderful on occasion to just stop and leave life alone? Your morning sounds most appealing, but I have to agree with JoAnn about the heater LOL. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
