The Plumpuppets

When little heads weary have gone to their bed,
When all the good nights and prayers have been said,
Of all the good fairies that send brains to rest
The little Plumpuppets are those I love best.

If you pillow is lumpy, or hot, thin, and flat,
The little Plumpuppets know just what they're at:
They plump up the pillow, all soft, cool, and fat-
The little plumpuppets plump-up it!

The little Plumpuppets are fairies of beds;
They have nothing to do but watch sleepyheads;
They turn down the sheets and they tuck you in tight,
And dance on your pillow to wish you good night!

-By Christopher Morley
