First Ones Up

Slanting yellow light
Footie PJs, sleeping bag
Mostly dry inside

Pad across the house
Past the picture window pool
Toward the sound of food

In a storybook
Eyes that twinkle mean you’re safe
Even far from home

Scottish plaid nightdress
Orange juice and buttered toast
We’re the first ones up
