Sleeping 'Au Naturel'

When there are more days behind you

Than those that lie ahead

Now really isn't the time

To be a-lying long in one's bed

So, kick off the covers

Go on, you I dare

Throw open the windows

And drink deep of the fresh air

But if you sleep 'au naturel'

Please do take a care

Lest your neighbour has a weak heart

And a proclivity to stare

Michael Ashby, Sidmouth
