Patricia Grantham

(May 27,1952 / Moncks Corner, South Carolina)

Refreshed


Wake up and smell the sweet roses
Nice aromas wafting up your noses
Rise up from your slumbering sleep
Open the door and take a big peep

The sun has risen and shines anew
Earth renewed from the morning dew
A day appears just for me and you
Arise and see another day through
