Tick-Tock! Tick-Tock!
my clock sounds loud.
“Oh! Stop it Mamma”
I cry out & shout.

Ting-Tong! Ting-Tong!
the clock ticks again,
making my comfort
go in vain.

Ring- Rong! Ring- Rong!
the phone rings now,
telling me to get over
my sleep anyhow.

Knock-Knock! Knock-Knock!
the door yells then.
“Who’s there?”
I have to check it again.

Ding-Dong! Ding-Dong!
the temple bells bark.
I was meant to get up,
when the sun gulped the dark.

“Get up honey! It’s already nine.”
Mamma says, “We’re all ready to dine.”
“Ohh no!” I missed the sunrise again
along with the freshness of dawn in my lane.
Then I promise to rise up early again.
But I’m sure that it would also go in vain.
