My alarm rings!
And through my bedroom window, I scorn a fading moon
No! This day has not begun.
I am sleeping, barely creeping.
Just another morning.

Ring louder; ring!
My calling, calling, I dare to ignore–too soon.
For the race has not been run.
Still, I’m keeping;  still keeping.
Just another morning.

I am king.   Listen…
I rule a most quiet domain, my darkened room.
I curse the laughing sun.
Shine my crown,  as I lie weeping, weeping.
Just another morning.
