Can you tell where I shifted from a mostly serious poem to a mostly fun poem?

Dream a Little Dream With Me

When up too late
don't hesitate
to invite a dream
an innocent scheme
to bring on sleep
a trip to deep
and spiritual lands
where loving hands
will protect your mind
from scenes designed
by evil souls
with wicked coals
infused with hate
to propagate
fear and pain
which will rain
in nightmare stories
and all their glories
a torrential storm
until the morn
brings the sun
all dreaming done.
Now wide awake
for goodness sake
don't stay up late
and eat fudge cake
with vanilla bean
and chocolate ice cream
after viewing
ghouls doing
what they'll do
if they catch you.
That is why
you should apply
my advice
and think of nice
sugar and spice
more than twice
before your head
hits the bed.
Now all's been said!

Isn't funny how the emotions move the mind or is it the mind moving emotions..
This was cleverly written- skipping along to doom and then aaaah!

Happy dreams, Phyliss....
But I wish you hadn't told me not to eat fudge cake...
I love fudge cake, so now whenever I'm not eating it,
I'll be thinking of you...

It seems as of late, when I dream, ideas for new poems
enter my little brain...which just goes to show that I'm
getting old...I can remember when all I ever dreamed about
was "girls"....I think poems instead of girls is a lousy exchange

I can't see the sepatation, but I love it all. Especially the vanilla. O I am with you there at the fridge in the early hours...

I think it starts with Now wide awake phyllis?lol A sweet little poem reminding us to think good thoughts, especially before we hit the sack!

Winking at you

Tai, a real dreamer

I try, but my dreams are strange anyway.

This has a real easy feel to it, very pleasing. A nice read.
