Melrose - Morning Check


Hallways darkened!
Walking quickly
Toward the room
Pen light in hand

Slowly entering
Mother's room
Not too far
'Motion Alarm'

Shining a light
On mom from afar,
Gentle breathing
I observe

Backing out slowly
Not to disturb
Another dawn
She will observe

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
