"The difficulty of literature is not to write, but to write what you mean; not to affect your reader, but to affect him precisely as you wish." ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

Staying Up Late

"I’ll stay up till this load of laundry’s done."
But really, it’s not for the laundry’s sake.
Though it may seem a crazy kind of fun,
I love to be the only one awake.
To think or read or silently to sit --
No interruptions -- there’s no matching it.

~ Tamary Shoemaker
(This doesn't quite work the way I wanted it to, but it's too late to write something else for today!)
