The Quiet Room

As I walked softly into the room, 
The fan turned  slowly beating a gentle rhyme
Stirring gently the warm air overhead 
While down below, blankets and crisp cool sheets,
Opened  onto a large fluffy bed 

A small lamp burned low in the corner 
Where sunlight streamed thru half closed blinds
Making columns of light that danced  in the air
While A fly droned on somewhere 
And a low voice from the radio
Talked on and on into the now emptied mind

The books pages blur by , while the head starts to nod
And the feet propped up on a stool keep time 
To a quiet room and a sleepy mind

Dreams gently called with wakefulness gone
Of lazy days and warm green places,
And  the stars shone on into the night 
While the heavens turned slowly in their eternal paces
