Remember children it is not
and never will be bad,
to sit up late and read in bed
the books that make you glad.

Forget that it is later than
you’ll sleep when quite grown-up,
if happy and depend on it
you should and must stay up.

Remember then to read your book
to midnight and beyond,
but try to take a nap or two
to make it more prolonged.

    Love this. This poem was my childhood anthem. Of course, now it means I have seriously disrupted sleep patterns as an adult, but it was worth it! 😀
