Hush-a-Bye, Lull-a-Bye

O precious babe let your drowsy eyes sleep,
Let go of your woes and relax into peace.
Mother is near to protect and keep peace,
Guarding your cradle all while you sleep. 

Dream, sweet darling, of angels aglow,
Keeping you safe, surrounding you whole.
O dear child, of pure, white soul,
Rest in quiet, tranquil glow. 

Dearest mine of sweet delight,
Lay down your head, may sleep not delay.
Dream of cuddles, warm baths and bouquets,
Of lulling songs and bedtime delights. 

Hush-a-bye
Lull-a-bye
Sweet babe so dear.
Sweet dreams are yours, good night, good night…

English: Sleeping baby.

Many thanks to you.

Honored by your precious grace,

Happy Holidays!

I nominate Bat-Ami Gordin, aka “Tammy”.  Her writings are always so unique and many times from a technical/scientific perspective which I find so appealing.  http://zongrik.wordpress.com

Thank you to the Poetry Palace and all my poet friends:  http://promisingpoetsparkinglot.blogspot.com/

    Beautifully written! I so love lullabies and sang them to my babes so many years ago now and to some of my grandbabes. Brings back memories.
