~~~~~

Itís way past your bedtime
Youíre still wide awake
How many more books
Is it gonna take?
Little boys at this time of night
Should be fast asleep
Lay down and close your eyes
Let me not hear a peep
You need your rest
To grow big and strong
Itís important
I would never steer you wrong
Give me a kiss goodnight
And say your prayers
Donít worry
Iíll stay right here

At last
He fell asleep
I waited until
I thought it was deep
I made my way
To the door
But he quickly awoke
From the squeaking floor
Go back to sleep
My dear son
No rest for the weary
Until itís done

Poetry is much like a great photo, a single "moment in time" capturing many feelings and emotions. Yet, they are very alive; creating stirrings within the readers who form visual "pictures" of the expressed emotions within the Poem. ©
