Ode to Flannel Sheets

Oh, I hate to get up in the morning.
When outside it's dark and it’s storming.
Flannel sheets on my bed.
Think I’ll stay here instead.
Only coffee could make it transforming.

One kitty is curled up beside me.
Dawn, through the curtain I now see.
Flannel sheets to my chin.
Fitness class soon begins.
What I need is a dose of some energy.

  1. Fun! It has an Ogden Nash feel to it to me.

  2. Oh, I love my bed too...
    I say that to my husband every night before falling asleep. "I love our bed...hum"

  3. Thanks Natasha and Dayner! In Ann's class we wrote out goals and one of mine was to write a limerick about flannel sheets - something I had just purchased at Costco. Well, this is what I came up with. There is another verse, but that was too many words for the flash.

  4. I'm going to be singing this in my head all day. Oh how fun! So charming and also inviting. Great limerick!
