Dexter’s Day: The Clouds are Fighting!
Daddy and Mummy and Me and I and them,
Were sleeping very soundly
The Clouds starting having a Big Fight!
The Moon couldn’t stop it
And the Clouds shouted and shouted,
So the Stars started throwing things at them
To stop them being so noisy
And I was SCARED!
Well, I wasn’t really:
I was Angry with them:
they made my outside bed wet –
and I hadn’t even decided if I was going to use it!
I was still having big sleeps with my parents
But I like to go outside to snooze when it’s dark
So I can thunk thoughts
and make plans….
Mummy and Me and I and she,
Got up at so , so , so very early , completely silly o”clock
And brought all of the cushions in
To stop them getting wet
Coz the Clouds had started crying
Very Big Tears!
The Stars threw their light on us
so Mummy could see the cushions
and I hid!
Coz the light was a bit Too Bright
And I wanted to go back to sleep.
The noise went on and on and one
Until breakfast time.
I kept checking all was okay,
To protect my parents,
Then jumping back into bed between them,
Showing them how many tears the Clouds were shedding
And drying myself on their pillow,
So we were all okay……
It’s been okay during this afternoon
But I think the fights are starting again
So I’m going to bed early.
My parents bed.
