AT FIVE, AMIDST THE SLEEPING ROSES

AT FIVE, AMIDST THE SLEEPING ROSES (A POEM)




At five, amidst the sleeping roses,


Like so many grandchildren


Enjoying their nightly repose


After play and dance of the day,


Enduring the heat of the fierce Sun


And the blast of the Texan winds,


I wait for them to wake up to greet me


Like my own granddaughter


Who will issue forth from her room


Like a hurricane for the school


In her hurry for breakfast


And a story from her grandma


About Indian monkeys that sat


On our car roof to travel a hundred miles


On rough dusty roads holding bananas


I offered them for the privilege


Of appearing in delightful morning tales


With deft daily modifications


To down breakfast cereal at seven!
