MY BED IS A BOAT





My bed is like a little boat;

Nurse helps me in when I embark;

She girds me in my sailor's coat

And starts me in the dark.



At night, I go on board and say

Good night to all my friends on shore;

I shut my eyes and sail away,

And see and hear no more.



And sometimes things to bed I take,

As prudent sailors have to do;

Perhaps a slice of wedding cake,

Perhaps a toy or two.



All night across the dark we steer;

But when the day returns at last,

Safe in my room, beside the pier,

I find my vessel fast.
