GOODNIGHT MOON Rearranged

Today is the 60th anniversary of the untimely death of Margaret Wise Brown. For want something better to do to commemorate this, I’ve taken all the words from GOODNIGHT MOON and rearranged them...

GO, NOTHING MOOD 
The moon was over
a toy-house there,
and quiet little noises
were everywhere. 
A room full of chairs
and nobody was sitting
and two old bears
and three little kittens
and a lady cow whispering,
Goodnight, goodnight,
on a green telephone.  
Hush-mush...
Hush-mush... 
Brush the old bears
and comb the young kittens,
and brush and comb
and pair red mittens. 
And there,
in a great balloon,
a little mouse, who,
jumping and jumping,
socks the stars
and clocks the moon. 
A balloon to the moon,
little mouse,
over chairs and room
and red mittens and house. 
A picture of air
and a bowl of light
and a lady cow whispering,
Goodnight
goodnight
goodnight
goodnight
goodnight
goodnight
goodnight
goodnight
goodnight
goodnight
goodnight
goodnight
goodnight
goodnight
goodnight
goodnight
goodnight
goodnight
...

Quite awesome, Ian! I especially like the use of "clocks" & "socks" as verbs!
