All the world is at peace


Until a furry bundle unfurled herself

And say, 'Let's play!'

Have you ever had a night
when you just couldn't sleep?
If yes, this poem is dedicated to you too.

Have you ever had a night
when you just couldn't sleep?
Even when you're so tired
you could fall off your feet?

You get up for a while
and then you lay back down
And just lie there
staring at the door all around

Have you ever had a night
when you just couldn't sleep?
And you remember that old adage
"Try counting sheep"

After some time has passed by
you decide you'll give it a try
And you start counting sheep
even their feet

Since sleep won't come
you get out of bed
And decide to have some
red mushroom instead.

Poem written by Ellen Bailey
Borrowed and re-written by a little furry bundle who doesn't know the meaning of copycat since she's a dog.

Being a busy dale and protector of my pinkies I never have trouble sleeping. I like to sleep on my back with paws in the air.

I could sleep any where I love to sleep.

Sometimes I like to roam around when the humans are sleeping. Just in case they forgot something on the table.

Hi, Happy -

Kaci and I (Hershey) don't have trouble sleeping. Mama sometimes does not get enough sleep - mostly because of homework.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci
