How I enjoy being wrapped up real tight Warmly curled up in a ball, Visiting Dreamland so deep in the night, Having no care at all! Warmly curled up, no noise allowed, There in my cozy bed; Blankets on top, the pillow a cloud Under my weary head. Then comes the sun, and it’s time to rise, Get up and greet the day. But how I love to again close my eyes – Dreamland’s my getaway! For Joann Grisetti's Copy Cat Poetry Contest This is the kind of poetry I grew up hearing, so I tried to imitate the exact rhythm of the poem I was inspired to copy and the innocent lyrical quality of "The Swing" by Robert Louis Stevenson

    I've enjoyed again reading this one, Andrea. Wish you the best and luck in the contest. By the way, to explain further my experience about picking up pennies, perhaps the cyclist thought that I will continue walking but when I bent 2 0r 3 x I guess, it was too late for him to grab the brake. Ha ha ha. It was really a funny & unforgettable experience of mine. So, no problem if you laughed. Have a wonderful day!

    I love RL Stevenson and love this one, my friend. One of my favourites has always been his land of Counterpane
