Today’s poem prompt for Writer’s Digest Poem-A-Day competition was based on taking the title from another Poet’s poem and rewriting it (and the poem to support it). I’m a big fan of Shel Silverstein. His work is so imaginative, fun and very kid friendly. Inspired by his poem ‘Sharing’ and my son, I submitted the following:
He can sleep under the table
He can sleep across the chairs.
He can sleep in the laundry basket.
He can sleep on the stairs.
He can sleep in the car
and anywhere he lays his head.
But he can’t seem to sleep
in his very own bed.
