Number 5

Elizabeth Wrobel

Night is the time for counting sheep.
One, two, three. Watch them as they leap.
Over the bed and onto the floor.
Look out! Here comes number four!
Eyes closing, falling fast asleep.
Just in time for the number five sheep.
Flying by, he giggles with glee,
“Hey, sleepyhead, you missed me!”
