Breakfast Time

Poem By James Stephens

The sun is always in the sky
Whenever I get out of bed,
And I often wonder why
It's never late.—My sister said
She did not know who did the trick,
And that she did not care a bit,
And I should eat my porridge quick.
... I think it's mother wakens it.

I it a good poem it should more lines
I so enjoy his sense of humor that gives foundation to his poems. Perhaps it is what helps him get through life on good days as well as bad. I am enjoying this selection of poetry by James Stephens.
Sweet poem about the wonder of children!
