It is February 1st. It is almost 60 degrees. It is a beautiful day that makes me want to dance. And I need to do a million and one things. Here I go...
Is it time to wake up so soon?
I want to push my alarm to snooze,
But the sun is shining,
And the day is warm,
And the birds are flying,
And is that a bug swarm?
Things are happening.
So I must happen too.
I cannot be stopped.
Even if this life is short,
I have brought beauty to this dirt.
And I have given flowers to February.
