A James Wright Poem

I was reading some poetry by James Wright, and I came across this one....

A Song for the Middle of the Night

Now first of all he means the night
You beat the crib and cried
And brought me spinning out of bed
To powder your backside
I rolled your buttocks over
And I could not complain:
Legs up, la la, legs down, la la,
Back to sleep again.

You can read the full poem here.

Legs up and Legs down, la la, is just too much fun. I love being a dad, even when sleep is elusive.
