Sleeping Time

“Sleeping Time,” Friend, July 1971, inside back cover

Sleeping Time

The horse sleeps standing up,

The sloth, upside down.

The robin sleeps high in a tree,

The bobwhite, on the ground.

The owl sleeps throughout the day,

The rooster sleeps at night.

The puppy sleeps all stretched out,

The kitten, rolled up tight.

But I like to snuggle beneath covers

On my own cozy bed,

With a sheet underneath and one on top

And a pillow beneath my head.
