When I was but a little girl
Each night, as I went to bed
Five angels would look down on me
From a picture above my head,
Mum told me they were a heavenly choir
That would sing as I went to sleep
Their songs, and hymns protection
Against the demons that dare creep
Into my dreams, to give me nightmares
And for that we should kneel and pray
To give thanks to the angels for keeping me safe
Through the night ‘til the break of day,
Time has flown, and I have grown
The picture has long since gone
But Sir Joshua Reynolds’s ‘Cherub Choir’
In my heart will forever live on.

    is funny... when I was little and listenin' to fairy tales, I didn't catch the part about flyin' time. Nice poem, Janette. Thanks.

    It must have been a blessing to have this picture above your head each night as you went to sleep, Janette. My mom allowed me to make a little shrine in my room and I used to say my nightly prayers before tiny statues of Jesus, Mary and angels. Lovely, uplifting poem! Love and blessings to you, Carolyn
