Edward Hirsch Morning Poems

  • 1.
    I walked down to the sea in the early morning
    after a long insomniac night.

  • 2.
    Saturday morning in late March.
    I was alone and took a long walk,
    though I also carried a book
    of the Alone, which companioned me.
  • 3.
    I used to mock my father and his chums
    for getting up early on Sunday morning
    and drinking coffee at a local spot
    but now IĆ¢??m one of those chumps.
  • 4.
    Tonight when I knelt down next to our cat, Zooey,
    And put my fingers into her clean cat's mouth,
    And rubbed her swollen belly that will never know kittens,
    And watched her wriggle onto her side, pawing the air,
  • 5.
    Tonight I want to say something wonderful
    for the sleepwalkers who have so much faith
    in their legs, so much faith in the invisible

Alfred Lord Tennyson Poem
 by Alfred Lord Tennyson

1. Is it the wind of the dawn that I hear
in the pine overhead?
2. No; but the voice of the deep as it hollows
the cliffs of the land.
1. Is there a voice coming up with the
voice of the deep from the strand,
Once coming up with a Song in the
flush of the glimmering red?
