A sonnet a day for February 2014 - day 21 - Journey

O wake me up early morn' to see sky
O way my arms stretch, my knees and legs bend
O I love water and to see birds fly
I watch them eat bread crumbs, then just ascend

Look up at those mountains so far away
Look way up at those trees, so nice and tall
Look at the sky, how clear it is today
I watch the sun at noon, at night stars fall

Wake me if I miss the rainbow 'cause sleep
Wake me if I rest and don't hear you call
Wake me from this grass while shepherds herd sheep
I watch the animals hasten and stall

Before my own eyes, day turns dark to night
Before my own eyes, my blind turns to sight
