A-drowse I muse, who is cuter asleep, baby fauna or Popeye.
Sure, tiny heaving feathered, furred, or terried chests attest
affection-stirred endearing as they engine-putter guileless nest;
yet knowing benevolent, bell-bottoms-exchanged, in a nightshirted
Miss Oyl’s Bluto savior’s dreamland bub bub bubs a contest rests.

Sarah is today’s host for dVerse’ Quadrille Monday. Sarah says:
Well, tonight we’re quadrilling, and, yes – sleep is the word. You can use any variant you like – sleep, asleep, sleeping, sleepy… – just so long as your poem is 44 words long and contains that elusive sleep word.

    Made me smile, Lisa. I’m pretty sure if Popeye showed up in one of my dreams I would have to wake up asap. πŸ˜‰ Love the bell bottoms.
