I wake in the morning early
And always, the very first thing,
I poke out my head and I sit up in bed
And I sing and I sing and I sing.
--Rose Fyleman from Poems and Prayers for the Very Young
Every morning Tippy-toe wakes up singing very loudly at the top of his lungs. I think of him when I hear this poem. I read it to the kids this morning and they laughed and said "That's Tippy-toe".
