Pillows. We pile them on our beds each morning so this nest will look pretty all day only to have to throw them off each night in order that we may rest. They hold up our heads, get plumped on a couch, can serve as a weapon during a fight, and are a kitty's friend when it's time for a nap. Filled with downy soft feathers or firm dense foam, pillows are one of the seemingly necessities of life. Perfect for punching, scrunching, drooling and dreaming on, what would we do without them!
A little place to rest your head,
A pretty thing to dress your bed,
To wrap your arms around with a hug,
Imagining that lover, as cute as a bug.
Now I lay me down to sleep
With hopes of sweet dreams intent to keep.
Cushy, mushy, soft and downy,
Making my hair kind of clowny.
Pillows for a car trip,
Mash it against the window so your head doesn't slip.
Weapons for a pillow fight,
Feathers flying, what a sight.
Dogs and cats curl up on one of their own,
Dreaming of cat nip or a big juicy bone.
What would a sleep be without this head rest?
Certainly not the same little nest.
