Night has come sneaking upon me, caught me working at this infernal machine.
My eyes are heavy from the work I’ve done, all the pages I’ve seen.
I think I’ll relinquish the keyboard for now, head for the kitchen and get me some chow.
Then it’s off to bed for a little sleep, if I can keep from having to count those sheep.

    And in the middle of the night this wonderful poem will come, you'll have to get out of bed and write it down and tomorrow it will be rubbish. Has that happened to you? Thanks for reading and commenting. Love, Joyce
