Rhode Island Morning for Clarice

When Clarice that day awoke,

With the sun over her house in Rhode Island,

And yawned a little before getting up,

And had notions going a while through her sleepy head, which before in bed was,

And then got out of bed,

And went towards the window of her home in Rhode Island,

And then dressed rather slowly,

This was day, life, sun, windows, life, morning, Rhode Island for Clarice.
