Cold Morning


In the morning when worry
shakes your shoulder

tell him you would sleep
a little more.

The jet streams dips, the world
is growing colder,

and any bear will tell you
sleeping is what winter's for

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
