The Morning Woke Up


The morning woke up
To flirt with the moon
The sun didn't shine
Because it was shy

The morning woke up
To hear the songs of sparrows
The flowers didn't sing
Because they were shy

The morning woke up
To breathe the breeze of sea
The boat didn't sail
Because it was shy

The morning woke up
To hug the clouds
The rain didn't fall
Because it was shy

The morning woke up
To tell the novel
The story didn't began
Because it was shy

The morning woke up
To gather the hearts
The feelings didn't complete
Because they were shy

The morning woke up
To rescue the childhood
The children didn't play
Because they were shy

The morning woke up
To lend a helping hand
The world didn't complain
Because it was shy

The morning woke up
To challenge the homeless
The world didn't wake up
Because it was shy

The morning woke up
To read the poem
The poet didn't write
Because he was shy...

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
