Morning Call

Who gets up early Saturday
So I can have a visit?
Wont be offended or annoyed,
I ask myself, Who is it?
Now, when I take the risk to see
Who, at the other end
Receives my visit joyfully;
Either its a friend
Who overlooks my thoughtless ways
And greets me anyway,
And sets aside her wish for sleep
And helps me start my day.

Or else, Ive guessed right, and theyre up,
But, even then, its kind
To receive someone on Saturday
When you have plans in mind.

For, who gets up early Saturday
After a busy week?
I say, its kind to take the time
And with a friend to speak.
