i often wake up at 3:00 a.m. too- the difference is my dog wakes up too and
assures me that everything is fine.

Stafford had a way with the ordinary. This poem reminds me of feeling
safe in a womb far away from the world at 3 a.m. I agree it is a beautiful
poem that brings the reader to the same place as the author.
