On Sweet Dreams

Feverish bedtimes

soothed by gentle reading

of favourite books


n.b. I heard today, not for the first time during this pandemic, of stories being read to unwell adults at bedtime. Such a simple act of love.

On the Bedside Table

So many books rest

Read me next! No, it’s my turn!

This better be good


n.b. “For later” is now.
