Bed in Summer

In winter I get up at night
And dress by yellow candle-light.
In summer quite the other way,
I have to go to bed by day.
I have to go to bed and see
The birds still hopping on the tree,
Or hear the grown-up people’s feet
Still going past me in the street.
And does it not seem hard to you,
When all the sky is clear and blue,
And I should like so much to play,
To have to go to bed by day?
Here are some questions to ask after listening to the poem:

Describe what you saw when you heard the poem?
What is the poem about?
Do you have a hard time falling asleep when the sun is still out?
