The sleepless napper moves
   Multicolored wheels
Upon a box of blocks
   Overtop the vent

Behind a broken shade
   Clamorous he climbs
To perch below the panes
   On his hidden throne

    Just to clarify – Matthew enjoys moving his wooden activity center (which is on wheels) under his window so he can look out on the backyard and watch the birds in the trees. The window shade covers him up, creating a cave-like feel. It is such a simple, serene activity for him…yet such a distraction from his nap.
