My bed has not been all that well
As from my absence you can tell –
Between the sheets I have remained,
To give it comfort there constrained;
I’ve cared for it ten days or more
(I haven’t really kept a score)
And I have put in care so deep
That all I’ve done is lie and sleep.
I hope it will more lively feel
So I away from it can steal,
And get some stuff more active done —
Just lying round is not much fun.
