I have been busy and having bad sleeping habits this past week! 🙂
So I am behind on my writing. I only have a poem to share this Monday.
It is not mine, (sorry) but it is way better than what I write!
This one is by Robert Louis Stevenson, who is a favorite poet of mine.
I hope you enjoy it!
This was one of my favorites as a kid. It is light and sweet.
My Bed is a Boat
My bed is like a little boat;
Nurse helps me in when I embark;
She girds me in my sailor’s coat
And starts me in the dark.
At night I go on board and say
Good-night to all my friends on shore;
I shut my eyes and sail away
And see and hear no more.
And sometimes things to bed I take,
As prudent sailors have to do;
Perhaps a slice of wedding-cake,
Perhaps a toy or two.
All night across the dark we steer;
But when the day returns at last,
Safe in my room beside the pier,
I find my vessel fast.
