'Once I slept in a Feather Bed'

---

ONCE, I slept in a feather bed,
where angels hovered..overhead.

I woke in the morning's early dawn
as .. moonlight shadows crossed the lawn.

A song bird hopped on the window-sill..
knocked and tapped .. with his little bill
Singing about a summer's day and
begging me to come and play.

I jumped out of bed ..

said morning prayers ..

ran, like a whirlwind ..

down the stairs ..

out the door ..round the bend
anxious to see my feathered friend
Hoping, like him, that I could fly
thru' the trees and ... way up high.

Instead, I dabbled in the stream all day
and tumbled in the golden hay.

When night-time stole across our land
Mama gently took my hand hand
To show .. what she had made for 'tea'
Raspberry cup-cakes! three for me!

Later, I lay in the ' SANDMAN"S' arms
an' fell victim to his sleeping charms

He brought me up the stairs once more

I went thru' my little door-

Hopped into the feather bed

And .. the angels who were overhead
Touched my eyes ..
with a slumber wand

and beamed me off ..
to ' the dreaming land'
