Wow. I am in awe of this poem. The wording again is very simple but the gentle touch is there. The first line makes me smile because I can imagine any mother with child waking up early. The children are wide awake and the mother a bit grumpy. Haha. I agree with hellon here every child needs their mothers gentle touch. I liked the somewhat double view point here. You have the mother who is sleeping and the cubs awaiting adventure. There is beauty in such a loving poem. Well done.
