My Bonnie Wee Babe


My bonnie wee babe hush hush now your cries
For darkness has come and cool is the night
White stars of heaven shine bright in the skies
And moonbeams glow soft with pure golden light

A butterfly kiss on your sleepy eyes
To sooth from your face that tight little frown
Will wash away tears and calm melting sighs
So snuggle up close neath soft eiderdown.

Fat little sparrows are warm in their nest
And fluffy young ducks hide under soft wings
The kitten’s curled up on old Papa’s chest
And off in the wood a lone songbird sings

Asleep is the sun in the western seas
Tomorrow she’ll rise and shine through the trees

    gosh, was this in that one lullaby contest and got overlooked or something? It's truly a SONNET and a soothing lullaby. Sorry i missed it earlier somehow. LUv, Andrea
