Today is National Crayon Day. One of the crayons used to color the picture on the right is being retired (Dandelion).

This poem was not written for this day. It was written after reading a poem by William C. Williams. Still this poem fits this day.

 

SLEEPY

As the crayon
crawled over
the edge of

the paper
first the right
hand

carefully
then the chin
stepped down

into the pit of
the empty
space
