Is It Better To Get Up Early?

Illustration:  Early To Bed, And Early To Rise.  NURSERY COLORED PICTURE BOOK.  McLOUGHLIN BROS.: NEW YORK. Ca 1870.

“EARLY TO BED, AND EARLY TO RISE.”

 “You naughty bird, I want to know

Why you so early rise;

You wake me, when you know that I

Have hardly closed my eyes?”

 

“Why, really, dear,” said Cocky Crow,

“I hear you with surprise;

You go to bed with other lambs,

And quickly shut your eyes.”

 

“So when I sound my morning call,

Be quick, my pet, and rise;

For that’s the way to healthy be,

And wealthy, love, and wise.”

  1. There’s no arguing with a cocky crow, it would seem. He obviously hasn’t heard that some people, especially teenagers, benefit from extra sleep in the morning.
