Quietly after bedtime

…a small cough runs from a door edged in light,

muffled talk turns to singing,

and then into whispers; Shhh,, Shhh, alright,

and a sudden ask - ‘How you feeling?’

of toys laid neatly on the bedroom floor.

They always answer ‘Fine!’

till he shouts loudly (in case you missed it earlier)

‘Good Night everybody – yes, yes, goodnight!’…
