In praise of my bed sheet.
In praise of my yellow bed sheet
This is a poem that I created to sing my praises for the sheets and bedding that give me soo much comfort every night. While I'm not the best at sleeping without kicking off the covers, I appreciate the willingness of my favorite yellow sheet to try and stay on my bed as I struggle to find rest during the night.
To The Yellow Sheet
To the yellow sheet that travels south each night,
Your job each day is to do what’s right.
Stay your post and keep the corners tight.
From twist and turns and bodies in motion,
that fight through your covers and keep up commotion.
You stand your ground and don’t give in,
your goal is to fight until the end.
And like the sentinel you are,
you bare the bruises of a hard fought war.
Until finally you carry on the struggle no more,
and gently fall onto the floor.
