Excessively Early

I awoke this morning excessively early
And I think that now, I should go back to sleep.
I cannot tell if I am tired or hungry
But my bed seems to call me, with the sheets in a heap.
My eyelids are heavy as I sit on the shore
And my coffee feels thick and sweet in my mouth.
And the gulls seem to screech, “We think you need more!”
That’s enough for me. I’m going back to the house.
I will climb the stairs and crawl back into bed,
And snuggle beneath covers, as quiet as a mouse.
I’m falling asleep—okay enough said!
