It's Late at Night

A Poem By Maddi // 7/7/2012

It’s late at night,
My thinking’s not right,
And I should lay down to rest.

My eyelids are drooping,
My backbone is stooping,
My hips are hula-hooping,
And I should lay down to rest.

I know it’s all for the best,
That I should lay down to rest;

But my mind can’t get over the test,
That this is all just a stupid jest.

Lie down upon my nest,
Which overlooks the family crest,
That’s where I’ll be taking my
Beloved, Cherished, Well-deserved
Rest.

Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed it. If, you're wondering, I actually did write this late at night, when I got really bored and these lines just came to me. Funny, huh? :P

Welcome to Apricotpie!

I really enjoyed reading this; you made me laugh! My favorite part is

'My eyelids are drooping,
My backbone is stooping,
My hips are hula-hooping,
And I should lay down to rest.'

Looking forward to reading more of your work!

Thanks!

Thanks for welcoming me! I've only been on here a few days, and already I love it. My favourite part is the same as yours; funny what the things you can come up with when you're bored!

I know this feeling! And late nights are great times to get writing inspiration (except that that often interrupts sleep) :) Well done on the poem, and welcome to ApricotPie!

Thanks Kyleigh! I really like some of your writings. I often have the problem
of not getting to sleep because of random ideas floating around in my head!
