A snippet of poetry

I sometimes jot down poems on whatever pad of paper is handy, and then lose them in the mix.  Here's one I found today.

At Night
You sleep with such abandon!
I am amazed by your travels 
across blanket-hills
and rivers of sheets.
I find you twisting and turning
within the canyon walls of your bed frame
sprawled across mountains of friends
who watch over you.
I marvel at your nocturnal journeys
wondering what strange dream countries
this child -- who never leaves my embrace --
visits alone.
