In the Virtue of making bed in the morning

In the Virtue of Making Bed in the Morning

Her daughter worries of the safety
of her children at school.
She has no word to comfort her, except
telling her:

first, open the window,
let the morning air, with the breath of 
the stars of pure dream, flood in;
Shake the pillow and the sheet,
let the residue of the bad dream
out of the window.
With that,

the red stains in the shirt,
the lifeless faces of the kids, revived;
now, all are safe in the class.

Now, you can relax and sit 
in front of the computer; work;
do the ritual every morning.
