The Earth’s Bedtime Pajamas - Poem by Christine K. Trease

Striped evening blueness
The shadows crisscross o’er the nighttime landscape
Caressing the trees and enveloping the hillside.
It cloaks the world with a checkerboard pattern of nightwear calm
Blue coolness overtakes the heat of the day as the earth prepares for rest
Slipping into her night-ness the earth is now at peace.

Striped evening blueness
Bedtime pajamas
Of the night
