Prompt: Lullaby

Sweet Baby, Sleep Now


Sweet baby, sleep now.
The birds have gone to nest.
They’ve softly settled down.
It’s time for them to rest.

Sweet, sweet child, sleep well.
The flowers have all closed.
They’ve gone to bed as well.
It’s time for them to snore.

Sweet baby, sleep sound.
The night has covered day.
They’ve traded places now.
It’s time for shadow play.

Sweet, sweet child, sleep now.
The moon will shine its beam.
The stars will twinkle glow.
It’s time for you to dream.
