Summons

Based on the poem “Summons” by Robert Francis (1901-1987)

Keep me from going to sleep too soon

Come wake me up, come wake me up

Come any hour whistling up the road

Stomp on the porch, bang on the door

 

Keep me from going to sleep too soon

Show me the clouds, show me the moon

Tell me the northern lights are on

See that I see, before they are gone

 

And I’ll light a light

Wake me up

I’ll come alive

 

Tell me the northern lights are on

See that I see, before they are gone
