…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!’…
