leap to sleep

Standing up high on a rooftop,

Thinking it ends here tonight,

Peering down at the drop,

It is nearly midnight,

It is time,

Looking back at his best pastime,

He breaths slow,

Wondering what is below,

He closed his eyes,

His stomach had butterflies,

He took a great big leap,

And went to sleep.
