I woke up early today
When it was still dark
Hearing a single crow cawing outside
Perched on the electric pole.
It kept cawing and cawing
For a long time
And I was worried –
Will the sun come up
If only one crow cawed?
Fortunately, other crows joined him after a while
And I knew there was no reason to worry any more
Soon the sun will come up in the eastern sky.
