In the Dark (A. A. Milne)



I’ve had my supper,
And had my supper,
And HAD my supper and all;
I’ve heard the story
of Cinderella,
And how she went to the ball;
I’ve cleaned my teeth,
And I’ve said my prayers,
And I’ve cleaned and said them right;
And they’ve all of them been
And kissed me lots,
They’ve all of them said, “Good-Night.”

So — here I am in the dark alone,
There’s nobody here to see;
I think to myself,
I play to myself,
And nobody knows what I say to myself;
Here I am in the dark alone,
What is it going to be?
I can think whatever I like to think,
I can play whatever I like to play,
I can laugh whatever I like to laugh,
There’s nobody here but me.

I’m talking to a rabbit…
I’m talking to the sun…
I think I am a hundred —
I’m one…
I’m lying in the forest…
I’m lying in a cave…
I’m talking to a Dragon…
I’m lying on my left side…
I’m lying on my right side…
I’ll play a lot tomorrow…
I’ll think a lot tomorrow…
I’ll laugh…
a lot…
