Bedtime Thoughts

Print Share
    The wallpaper in my bedroom
    Has a hundred boats or more,
    With here and there a lighthouse
    Standing bravely on the shore.
    And here and there a floating buoy—
    Hear its lulling bell?—
    Gently bobs as gulls fly o’er
    A green and grayish swell.
    I wonder if it’s possible
    That on some magic night
    I’ll climb aboard one of those boats
    And sail out of sight.
