From Roof to Bed

Once while in bed in slumber,
Peaceful and past encumber,
I woke to a rude invite,
To sounds of the rain at night.

I turned away, in half wake,
From a dream now half opaque,
Listening to the strident sound,
Raging echoes on the ground.

The air heavy, moist and full
Smelt to me, of wet lambs wool.
But I ignored this rank bore
Closed my eyes in sleep once more.

Rain had leaked from roof to bed
And wet warmed, my woolen spread.
And though I lay in candor arms,
My sleep had not lost its charms.

When the sun did finally show,
I was smiling, wet head to toe.
For sleeping woolen wet it seems,
Stimulates the sexiest dreams.

That warranted a chuckle. More I will not say. Nicely done.

Scot and Elvira, thank you and it does give a new meaning to wet dream.

Good for you Lady E., I just wasn't prepared to go there. There was this whole wool / sheep / sleep thing that I just wasn't willing to touch either. Anybody know the way out of the gutter?

Just because you wake with wrinkled skin
Doesn't mean it's wet, my friend.
Good show, Sy

Wonderful description of being woken by something you would rather ignore, with a very funny twist - I loved it.

Yo! Suthern... I'll grant you, the gutter can be a fun place to slug around in but, sometimes you have to climb the moral high-ground so you can have the fun of rolling back down the hill. That, and I understand you can get a pretty good view of Toe's graves from there.

Sy: Sorry for mucking up your area with this stuff.
