lullaby, baby night
close your eyes in the silver light
you are beloved in my arms tonight
lullaby, lullaby

let your dreams wander in the starry skies
lullaby and hear the moonbeams sigh
on their beams let your lashes lie
lullaby, lullaby

lullaby, little satin one
feel the perfumed breath from stars above
let them kiss you briefly, little dove
lullaby, lullaby

your coos and tiny murmurs fly
across the rippling wavelets rise
swish, splash, hush, hush child mine

*a lullaby written for my children*
