My Good Night

toss your gladiolus

to the rhythm of the frogs

cover sleepy stones

with wide umbrella palms

be extra kind to those

tired garden mums

and tuck me in gently

with quiet cricket songs



  1. There is a lovely gentleness about this poem Angie. Nicely done.

  2. Oh, lovely! Like a children’s fairy tale or lullaby. Perfect, very inspired!


    • I think this inspiration would have been great for the previous children’s bedtime story prompt, but it came when it came nonetheless.

  3. This poem is just lovely. The swaying rhyme and the word play is intoxicating. Love it.

      • My little city-born son experienced the sound of crickets for the first time last summer. They were so noisy that he couldn’t sleep, until we told him they were chirping his name: “‘Night-‘night-‘night Nick-Nick-Nick.” Worked like a charm. 🙂 Ooo, actually, I wrote about that for a different Trifextra!

  4. “wide umbrella palms” I love that visual, of being covered in quiet and peace.

    this was so pretty and poetic, I simply wanted to rest my own head.

    such a lovely way to give way to dreams.

    • You can either read this or use Bath & bodyWorks lavender chamomile pillow mist for a good night’s sleep. Maybe combine the two? 😴

      • I have that mist!!! I do. I also love Moonlight Path from B&BW spritzed on my pillows.

        Glad to see we’re on the same page of the lullaby. 😉
