This is a time for gathering side by side,
Frustrations set aside by the riverside.
Step off the roller coaster of life,
Spend time with the people in your life.

Set up the fryer and inject the turkey.
Dinner prep starts bright and early.

I only tell of sunny hours
I only tell of sunny hours...
Break time under cloudy showers;
Work day’s done after dark --
Bright and early I’m a lark.

No complaints, I like my day job.
(Despite getting called Thingamabob.)
Feels good sunbathing all day,
My happy round face on display.

I’m of ancient...Read More

GREMLIN'S ARRIVAL
Today
I email
I google
I print
But at night the gremlin arrives
He lives deep in my cupboard
And when he is ready
comes out of the shadows
malevolence in his eyes


I awake bright and early 
The sun still asleep
Today I have deadlines to meet
When I push...Read More

The Silly Farmer
Awoken was the farmer one bright and early dawn,
Restless and he couldn’t sleep,
So he thought he’d mow the lawn.

He went into the garden and got down upon his knees,
Much to surprise to the farmer’s wife,
He was cutting it with his...Read More

IN HER COPPER COLOURED WIG
A respectable girl was she; or so she appeared to be 
Living alone in her dear little cottage at number seventy three

Each day she left home bright and early, as she walked to the railway station
Awaiting the train she would...Read More

Up bright and early at the crack of dawn
Seems that's been my routine forever
Don't wanna waste a single damn moment
Don't wanna miss a single thing ever

Early to bed early to rise, makes one healthy and wise....
So here I am,  wide awake and awaiting sunrise....

If they awake before noon, that itself is an event.....

Hopeless
Hopeless 
By Samuel K Byrd

A hot meal, a cold bed, and hopes
that tomorrow will be a better day
unemployed house foreclosed and the repo-man
arrived bright and early yesterday
tax cuts, tax incentives, stimulus package
all a little too late

Waking up bright and early, and allready using the percolator
Figure out what is and isn't worth the labor
Learn what's greater
Before a possible outcome is determined later
Don't ever try to put people, animals or the Earth in danger
Otherwise I'll take you...Read More

Going Fishing
Wake up bright and early
Eat a hearty breakfast
Pack up a yummy lunch
Check all of your fishing gear
Put on your oldest clothes and favorite fishing hat
Don’t forget the sunscreen
Time to get a move on, while the fish are still really biting
Quick...Read More

With the City Park clean, a better raise might come, so very long over due.

Lament for a Porcupine
How pitiful is my little friend,
the dweller of the wood.
He has much love to lend,
and his disposition is good.

He lives in a treetop haven,
away from the truculent masses.
No kinder heart lives in stagnation,
as he watches the lover as he passes.

What a Day
What a Day.

Bright and early
every waking minute
passes me by without a look.

Invisible to the world.
All that is seen and unseen,
Only an empty vessel
carrying on a non-existent life.

Soaring deep within
the vessel we call life.
It is blank and absent
like minds lost in...Read More

The Chase
Bright and early in the morning,
Certain seasons of the year,
The hunter feels temptation,
To chase the timid deer.

With his rifle and his knife,
He searches constantly,
Every hoping, ever dreaming,
Just one deer to see.

Though he may come home at night,
At a not-so-hurried pace,
He...Read More

waiting for the moon
The sun already came

And then smoothly it left as was its arrival
The moon hasn't arrived yet
It's running late
The still dark night awaits 
Two love hearts lay in the dark waiting...Read More

Little Davy wanted a puppy for Christmas
His parents, though, were totally against it
Davy whimpered and whined til he was breathless
“Please,” he wrote to Santa, “bring a puppy, Mr. Clause”

The big day drew closer and Davy said a prayer,
“Please, dear Lord,...Read More

THE FIRST DAY OR LAST
She looks in the mirror full of anticipation.
 A bright shining future with a good education.

 A beautiful smile with deep defined dimples.
 One day at a time, life seems so simple.

 Up bright and early, so happy so bliss.
