Nap Time

Is there anything as luscious as an afternoon nap?  
Children fight and struggle against naps so hard.
Teens succumb to naps when time allows.
The twenties through forties are too crammed
With college, jobs, children for some to have nap time.
It is great to be at a time of life where
The lure of sleep is not seen as a denial of life's excitement
But a reward for rising early or just cleaning the kitchen.
This post is short and full of yawns as I struggle
To keep eyelids open and fingers typing legible words.
But, alas, I must surrender to the siren call of nap time.
Turn the lights out as you leave, please.
