The Last Day of Sunshine

Like an addict
I barter for a little more sleep
Missing the dawn

Finally awake
But trapped behind glass
I watch a cloudless landscape
roll by

Afternoon is
Locked in a curtained house
Listening to voices drone
Deprived the feel of breeze
And the smell of leaves

Freed at last
Sunset has long faded
Into Autumn night

Too few, too precious
These waning sunny days
To be squandered thus

This is the last day
The last day of sunshine
I will waste
