Sandman Nursery Rhyme

When the Sandman’s near I can almost hear his soft footsteps breaking ground. With his tender touch my eyes feel so much as he sprinkles sand around. I don’t want to sleep but I want to keep all the dreams he has for me. So I welcome sand from his gentle hand and I drift off peacefully.

I knew this would be a hit with the little ones when my sweet little granddaughter made me read it to her 10 times! She just kept saying “read it again!” She was almost 4 and could not read yet. Later on I made a book for her of poetry and pictures of family and I included this poem and others. Thank you for your lovely comment Gershon. Blessings xxoo

I think I told you that little Carissa kept telling me to read it again about ten times. I put it in a picture book for her with other children poems I have written over the years. I am pleased that Eve liked it too. Mahalo, Connie xxoo
