An Illustrated Vampire Bedtime Story – with apologies to Margaret Wise Brown


Image



Goodnight Moon(light)


Image


In the penthouse room
There was a fireplace
And an old jazz tune
And a picture of -


Image

a singer who knew how to croon.




Image

There were some funky chairs
And a set of stairs




Image

And two lighted towers




Image

And a really cool shower




Image

And some decorative lamps
And a couple of vamps




Image

And some glass on display




Image

And a tumbler of “A”




Image

And a lovely young lady who came by to say “Hey.”




Image

Goodnight room




Image

Goodnight moon




Image

Goodnight singer who knew how to croon




Image

Goodnight fire
And the great jazz tune

Goodnight chairs
Goodnight stairs

Goodnight towers




Image

Goodnight shower ........ (Ooops - moving right on....)




Goodnight books
And goodnight nooks



Image

Goodnight cool lamps
And goodnight vamps


Goodnight glassware on display
Goodnight Josef



Image

Goodnight “A”




Image

And goodnight to the young lady
Who came by to say “Hey.”




Goodnight stars
Goodnight air


Image

Goodnight vampires – everywhere.


(The end.)

oh, this one was so sad ,Lilly, I did not expect it. It really felt to me just like saying goodbye to the series that was so stupidly cancelled. Believe me, it brought me tears. Is there a smilie with tears to use here?
-It never ends well...
-Never?

Aw, maggatha, thank you so much for checking this out. :hug: This piece was written well before cancellation, just as a bit of fun (it was a follow-up to the "Green Eggs and Ham" parody), but it certainly has become quite bittersweet in retrospect. :comfort2:

I truly appreciate your comment and I believe this is the smilie you're looking for... :hankie: :sigh:

How is it POSSIBLE that I've never commented on this wonderful story here at MLA?! Goodnight Moon was my favorite bedtime story, and this version is my favorite of your vamp bedtime stories... although it's actually kind of hard to choose... I guess I'll have to go look at them all, just to be sure. :laugh:

Thank you, dear Lilly, for your gentle sense of humor and your wonderful talents at putting together the perfect pictures with the perfect text, to remind us not just of Moonlight, but also of the wonderful experience of reading to our kids. :hearts:
