Child's Sleep Complaint (The Moonlight Serenade) - Poem by Chuck Audette

the moon
seems very loud
tonight
I need a cloud
to put out the light

    Gentle little epigram. I agree with Ez, it certainly could have been written by Spike.

    The sky is full of holes
    to let the rain in
    but the holes are very small
    that's why rain is thin.

    Clever lad. I love it. Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

    Great. Don't know why but it reminded me of Spike Milligan.

    They say that poets are seven times as likely to be synaesthetic
    I wonder if synaesthetes are seven times as likely to be poets
