Poems and Songs

Up in the Morning Early

Photographers whose thoughts incline

To landscape when the weatherís fine

Must rise if they intend to shine

Up in the morning early

Rise with the birds and hurry out

To greet the morning with a shout

Then look attentively about

Up in the morning early

When sunlight floods the grassy glade

And dewdrops glint on every blade,

Thereís poetry in light and shade

Up in the morning early

With atmosphere its very best,

Receding planes and all the rest

Thereís mystery, thereís interest,

Up in the morning early

Be sure that what I say is true

I had it from a man who knew

Myself, Iím never quite (are you?)

Up in the morning early.
