In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: « A True Saint. »
My response to this prompt is mostly influenced by the fact that I lack of sleep and there’s nothing I’d like more than having the luxury to just grab a plaid and a pillow and doze off on the couch.
But this is not an option for now.
In the light of these facts and in the spirit of helping other people, I opt for Our Lady Duchess, Holly Patron of Naps.
To invoke me, there’ll be no need for prayer nor candles.
Just an infinite care and respect for your pillow and usual sleeping place.
Now that I think of it, maybe a prayer will do too.
Oh dear duchess, our Lady of Naps
I have no current passion for schnaps
But a great need to sit, lay and rest
To restore my quick wits and interest.
Please grant me restorative sleep
Immediate and Oh ! so peaceful
Maybe some dreams, nothing fool
-ish, a chunk of slumber deep.
Should you hear and soothe me
I swear I’ll stop being grumpy.
