Staying Up Late

Yes, it’s been a long time since my last post.  It’s been a busy year and many different parts of life have commanded my attention (Hence, the site name SteveLacksFocus).

On one such occasion of distraction, I was looking through old materials that I had put in a file probably back in college days.  I got a chuckle re-reading it and thought it might be fun for the blog.  I reworked a little bit of the meter and rhythm.  Here you go:

Staying Up Late

Neither evening, Noon, nor night
am I in such a plight
as in the morning when I mourn
for a day that's newly born.
The cock crows,
the light grows,
and all God's creatures come alive
except for me.
Don't you see?
I was up 'til quarter to five.
