A sleepless night- I had tonight, because a baby’s cry
Took flight- in the dark of my lonely room. My
Shadow gets beside the baby- to rock her. I try
To make Her SLEEP- The Baby can’t speak. She Screams only.
I dreamily stare at the open window- wishing a moment
Of Sweet Sleep- The type Infants have after hearing Sonnets.
Oh, Little Girl, why wont You finally sleep?- I state,
As She drifts- into thoughts of Sweets She earlier- ate.
As I see coming from the Shadows- an Imaginary Knight-
I encourage Her to go With Him-just for Tonight.
She Cries-With the Idea-She should scream with-Delight.
The Knight-Lifts her, and she gets ready-For a Flight.
