Sunlight, please help us take heart
As our eyelids drift apart.
Boil the kettle, toast the bread,
Drag weary limbs out of the bed
And warm the water that anoints
The tired souls with aching joints.
Sing, you birds, and share your cheers
With half-awake and muffled ears.
Fry the bacon, brew the tea,
And hope that kind this day shall be
To those of us with sluggish treads
As we nurse our pounding heads.
