bed in summer

Another whirlwind weekend behind me; summer Reading and working lots of extra hours to cover 3 weeks of other folks' vacations has worn me down. My vacation to Germany can't get here soon enough! It is sad that I get super pumped about going home and getting into pjs and bed to do some reading before I crash?

"Bed in Summer"
 
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?
--Robert Louis Stevenson
