Good Night

I'm tired.
I'm sleepy,
and I'm cranky.
All I want
is my favorite blanky,
a good night kiss
my bedtime prayers,
then tuck me in
with my teddy bears.

     I've been having fun working on night poems this week.  Things at night look very different than they do in the day time.  Which do you like better, day or night?  Can you write a poem about that?  Have fun.


  1. Joy,

    This is adorable. I can see it adorning a nursery wall.

  2. Dear Joy,
    I think you could make this one into a picture book. I love the rhythm.
    Thanks for sharing your gift with us.

    Happy Thanksgiving a few days ahead.


  3. Thank you for your suggestions. I'll have to do some tweaking and see if it might make a board book. There isn't enough here (yet) for a picture book. I do like the idea of a poster for a nursery wall.
    Hope you have a great Thanksgiving. I have so much to be thankful for. Especially for great friends like you.
