Tis the night of the read-a-thon and each place you look
some creatures are snoozing and some read a book.
Lola is nestled all snug by her dad
While he reads her stories of Lassie and Lad
Across the room, Gabby is asleep without care
No stories from HER dad; he snores in his chair.
Under the table, Miss Molly sleeps, too.
But Mom can't sleep yet, there's too much to do.
For Mom, in her jammies, has hours to go.
There's reading and challenges left, don't you know.
She slips to her reading chair with books, cup and light.
Merry Reading to all, and to all a Good Night.
