Rookie (12/10/1959 / WASHINGTON, D.C.)

...........................THIS MORNING................................


i woke up, and said good morning god
what a beautiful day this is
birds singing with cheer
making love on a ledge
i whispered hey slow down
but they kept on singing
what a beautiful sound
i shivered in the cool breeze
relaxed, and prayed please
a moment of silence
then i sung the blues
my baby dun left me
my baby is gone
oh my baby was so fine
when she was mine all mine
my baby dun left me
my baby was sweet
without her i don’t feel complete
the birds kept singing
and i was proud
because god gave the strenght
to sing out loud
my baby dun left me
my baby is gone
but i’ve got to find the strength to carry on
i got the early morning blues

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
