The Seaside Lullaby Sonnet Kyrielle

Your daddy's boat is on its way.
The lighthouse sends a gleaming ray
that blinks and whirls in starry sky.
For you, sweet babe, this lullaby.

You soon shall be on Daddy's knee,
for though tonight he rides the sea,
he follows gulls that homeward fly.
I sing the seaside lullaby.

The beacon's beam is light that guides;
it's steadfast as the ocean's tides.
So close your eyes, for sleep is nigh.
For you, sweet babe, this lullaby.

Your daddy's boat is on its way.
I sing the seaside lullaby.

For Catie LIndsay's "Sing A Lull-a-bye" Contest
