morning street sweeper

since the first day of its indefinite stay in the south it has gradually accustomed itself to waking as early as five in the morning, and sleeping no later than eleven in the evening. it has witnessed the rotation of the sun for four to five days already, and observed a morning routine of the street sweeper. amidst the tangles and twists and knots of the cables and wires, from where it is stuck, it appreciated how much the street in front of it could appear pleasant with the early morning sunrise warmth and a little bit of coolness of the early morning breeze, were it not for street sweeper. it thought, should it fall from its niche in between the old wooden planks of the balcony, it would be with satisfaction that the road be swept clean from it by street sweeper.
