Well, kids no longer will be complaining that they have to get to the bed--it gets pretty dark even by kids' sleep time. Now that Labor Day is round the corner, it also means that summer vacation will come to an end for those kids whose school years have yet to begin. Perhaps their parents have been prepping them up the last few days on a school day schedule of waking up at a certain time, and going to bed by a certain hour.In winter I get up at night
And dress by yellow candle-light.
In summer, quite the other way,
I have to go to bed by day.
I have to go to bed and see
The birds still hopping on the tree,
Or hear the grown-up people’s feet
Still going past me in the street.
And does it not seem hard to you,
When all the sky is clear and blue,
And I should like so much to play,
To have to go to bed by day?
To everything, turn, turn, turn ...
