Awaken, shake your limbs, send blood to their tips.
Wet your throat and wash your face, awaken
and come away.

There is much to do, there are words to say,
there are places to plant your feet in, people
to greet as they greet the day.

The sun is full above the horizon, the whole
stretch of the world is turning in it.
Fresh twigs are showing their green, racing for
what till now has been receding. You’ve seen it?
The morning arriving earlier every morning now.

Full in your face as you lie awake,
it is time, it is time, it is day.
