Alarm clock

Every morning I lie warm peacefully sleeping
When rips through the air the most terrible beeping.
From a monstrous noisy shrieking plastic block
My nasty persistent tiny little alarm clock
All my good intentions I’d get up this day
Have overnight fled, are now long away
Across the room another alarm joins in
Just adding to the noise, oh what a din
I hide under the duvet please noise go away
I’m dopey, comfortable, warm, I want here to stay
I turn over, groan, and reach out for the snooze
Wishing the persistent noise I could loose
If only I can nap for a few minutes more
But this I have said so many times before
Its not that I dread the coming day
I just don’t like being rudely awoken this way
But this will be repeated tomorrow this I know
However much this alarm I want to throw.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
