Magpie Tales #237 Not an Early Bird

Morning Curtains

Lacy curtains cover her eyes
It's really too early to arise
Foggy thoughts fill her head 
She'd really like to still be in bed
Sleeping warm and and very happy
Better bring her some coffee...
And make it snappy!


  1. Humorous and well written.

  2. Oh this is me in the morning and coffee is the first thing I want. Wait...make that the second thing I want.

    Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs. Tons of scritches to Lucy. ♥♥♥

  3. Yes, I love to stay up late in bed the holidays!

  4. Yep, i'd like coffee when i feel like that, too!

  5. A fun ditty. You really have a knack for recreating these pictures with words.

  6. Aha! Coffee is just right :)
    Then, the pretty lady will show her face & not hide :)
    Nice poem.

  7. Happy Wife , Happy Life !

  8. I have been known to fall asleep in similar positions lol :-)

  9. Yes Ma'am .. right away Ma'am!

  10. A fun & funny verse! Hmmm, coffee...*trundles off in thrall to the power of suggestion*

  11. Yes, I was brought a cup of tea in bed this morning. No, it was not done out of kindness, but of necessity. I needed to be forced out of bed. The tea started it and the bladder finished the job. :-)

  12. Hey snappy is your expertise...Kathe....gotta have the coffee that is for sure. :-)


I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page.
