cold and dreary day
take my misery away
pot on the stove
soup cannot be cold

longing for right now
a storybook somehow
nothing sad to read
something enlightening

and nothing is better than
reading with a soft blanket on
a cup of tea nearby
a sip or two at a time

and as the evening ends
the eyelids they will bend
yawns will soon ensue
reminding me it’s bedtime soon

in preparing for the night
the blanket feels just right
feeling as soft as sheep
while I drift into sleep
