This week we read Li Po’s “Quiet Night Thoughts,” a great poem for setting a scene and sharing one’s quiet thoughts. Enjoy!

In front of my bed
I see my carpet
glowing so bright
and light

When I lay
my head
down I think
of what I am going to do in the morning

When I listen to the wall I hear
neighbors across from me talk
like they are animals.



Going to Sleep
India W.

When I go to sleep I
hear my family
talk about me. talk
and learning.

As I drifted away,
My dream comes today.
I dream about my daddy.
Being so happy.



Things I See at Night
Julian C.

Before my bed
There is bright moonlight
on my blue bedspread
like blue paint on paper

Bringing my head up
I look out the window
Bringing my head down
I dream that I’m in candy land.

I see us but
in sleep with a dream
I dream the house
princess in the princess

What I See when I Go to Sleep
Jayleen P.

Before I go to sleep I see
my lava lamp, sticker that glow in the
dark, I see them



Before Bed
Angel M.

Before bed I see my toys.
There are a lot of stars
And it seems like I’m in WWE
In the ring.

Before bed I see my shoes
There’s a big moon
And it seems like I’m in the space



Benjamin N.

Before my bed
There is my mom shining bright light
So I fell asleep
But I can’t fall asleep.

I dream about mom making good food
I dream about my baby cousin
I dream about good
