Early Hour

I have to keep a journal for an English class I am taking.  We're encouraged to use our creativity in the form of poetry and drawings, so I wrote a silly poem in the style of Emily Dickinson.

I do realize my poem isn't even about death, so that's a pretty big difference between me and the "other" Emily.  But here goes.  The poem is about my 8am class.  I'm blessed, right?

Early Hour

Walking in the Morning
Sun's whisper and caress -
On one hand I am weary
On the other, Bless'd -
The Early Hour aching -
How it stings to rise!
Thankful for the Learning 
My tired Body cries -
I will awake each Morning
Walk the way to Class
My Life — that of the Student
To Learn, my Noble Task -

Two years ago: He was ALWAYS there.
Three years ago: Leave an anonymous letter of encouragement.


  1. I'm taking a 8am english class too this semester, so I feel your pain!

  2. Miss you and your posts, Emily! Hope all is well with you!
