A Good Night Dream by Geary Smith

by Geary Smith

Before bedtime, and I go to sleep And crickets outside singing a tune. The nightmare of crawling creatures creep Beneath the watchful eye of the moon. At night our school is still and dark And the night stars began to arrive. And old oak trees in the park Seem to come alive. At night my big brother began to snore And baby sister will roll over and cry As shadows slide across the ceiling and floor And witches flying by. At night I hear the floorboards creak And dogs bark, and cat’s meow. I put my pillow over my head and press my cheek And the fan blows cool air over my brow. I think about my dreams of the distance past And plans for the new day Until I fall asleep at last And dream the night away.
