Poem by Katherine Mansfield


A Day in Bed


I wish I had not got a cold,
The wind is big and wild,
I wish that I was very old,
Not just a little child.

Somehow the day is very long
Just keeping here, alone;
I do not like the big winds song,
Hes growling for a bone

Hes like an awful dog we had
Who used to creep around
And snatch at things--he was so bad,
With just that horrid sound.

Im sitting up and nurse has made
Me wear a woolly shawl;
I wish I was not so afraid;
Its horrid to be small.

It really feels quite like a day
Since I have had my tea;
Praps everybodys gone away
And just forgotten me.

And oh! I cannot go to sleep
Although I am in bed.
The wind keeps going creepy-creep
And waiting to be fed.
