In the early morning hours


In the early morning hours
The sky is filled with clouds
I love this morning time do I
Away from all the crowds
I take my Bear dog on his lead
As the rain grows wild, and strong
 And we two walk, the streets together
My heart is filled with song.

There’s nothing like a morning walk
When that soft, sweet, velvet rain
Caresses one with tender touch
It’s not that I’m insane 
I just like being held in nature
I guess that’s who I be
Cause me, I be a natural man
And  I love mystery.

I see there just in front of me
Two massive kangaroos
As the gates, I walk on through
And Bear, he sees them too
I grab him lest he should take off
Those Roo’s are kind of tough
As, If I let Bear off the lead
He’d find out soon enough.

The danger gone, we both move on
And take the road Back home
We’ve seen the rain and Kangaroos
We’ve had our little roam
And now it’s time to be at home
And write a song or two
When I’m not walking with my bear
Then this is what I do.

    Hi Peter, I always like a walk in the rain for some reason. Definately not insane to like the walk in the rain, for some reason it helps me think. I just like to turn my face up to the sky and feel those drops against my face. Once again you lighten my day my friend. I do so enjoy your early morning walks and your late night reverie, it brings such peace to the soul and you write them in such a gentle flowing way. A gift Peter. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    I take my dogs out walking to write as well. We don't get roo's though, just more people and dogs. Great poem mate, love the way it feels.
