The Waking

I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.
I feel my fate in what I cannot fear.
I learn by going where I cannot go.

We think by feeling. What is there to know?
I hear my being dance from ear to ear.
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.

Of those so close beside me, which are you?
God bless the Ground! I shall walk softly there,
And learn by going where I have to go.

Light takes the Tree, but who can tell us how?
The lowly worm climbs up a winding stair;
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.

Great Nature has another thing to do
To you and me; so take the lively air,
And, lovely, learn by going where to go.

This shaking keeps me steady. I should know.
What falls away is always. And is near.
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.
I learn by going where I have to go.

--Theodore Roethke

Just As I Thought!

When I wear my Disney t-shirt, Brendan points out the characters on it. Because I told him so, he says, "Grammy is a little bit goofy." Turns out to be true, only not such a little bit! Sleeping Beauty next, huh? I can see that, too. I have a 63% chance of Prince Charming kissing me and waking me up, I suppose. Or am I just being Goofy?

You scored as Goofy. Your alter ego is Goofy! You are fun and great to be around, and you are always willing to help others. You aren't worried about embarrassing yourself, so you are one who is more willing to try new things.



Sleeping Beauty


Peter Pan


The Beast








Cruella De Ville


Snow White
