Cecil Dreams a Bed--By Elizabeth Howard, United States

Cecil Dreams a Bed

In my sleeping chair, I am cold.
I dream scary stuff, rats with long
yellow teeth, monsters at the broken
window, a red-eyed giant with a belt.
When teacher tells us to draw our room,
I draw my chair.  Where’s your bed? she asks.
I never had a bed, but I dream a soft pillow,
blue sheets, a quilt like the one on the wall
at school.  In a warm bed with a pillow,  
I wouldn’t have scary dreams. 


  1. Dear Elizabeth,

    I love your view on dreams, very original.

    Best wishes,

  2. Hi Elizabeth. Thank you for sharing the well-written and passionate "Cecil Dreams a Bed." I enjoyed it. Continued blessings!
