Simple Pleasures: Ode to my Bed

Oh chrysalis of cloth, surround me!

Wrap me in your soft embrace,

And warm my body!

Let me be snug, and safe, away from the world.

Oh chrysalis of cloth, support me! 

Let my weary body rest,

And recline on springs.

Let me be free from burdens and heavy eyes.

Oh chrysalis of cloth, absorb me!

Let me sink into your sea:

Dark, quiet, and calm.

Let me be alone with the dark, and the dreams,

Oh chrysalis of cloth, restore me!

Let me emerge a new being.

A butterfly.

Let me be fresh and eager for the new day.
