Careful where you tread!
The Night Garden
Up in the tree, Sleepy slept soundly
The day was done - evening stars shone
Human-kind had doused their lamps
All yawned loudly.
Sleepy stretched - scratched his head
Looking for his kin: plaster faces
Dopey wriggled his ears; pachyderm?
Doc polished his glasses; learned mind.
Grumpy stamped in dismay -
"Let's get this party underway."
Gentle snoring from the house; humans
Dopey tripped over his robe - fell face down.
"Hey!" Frog croaked - hopping madly
Sleepy shimmied down his tree -
"I'm awake - let's party!"
All night they tended the garden.
Pulling out plants; pesky weeds prospered
Plaster dwarfs they are not
Beginning sneaky work at ten O'clock
Keep your door closed - handy the hose!
My photo of Sleepy (one of the Seven Dwarfs) snoozing through the day in the bed we made for him; don't have all seven of the little fella's - be careful what you wish for!Pays one point and 2 member cents.
