A Lullaby

by Mark   Sep 20, 2017

Night has arrived - time to drift away
Release the sails of patterned rose
Stardust fairies will wave from the bay
Ocean winds play as it flows.
Oh sail, oh sail away tonight
So pretty, dream time.

Drift amongst the flowers on your bed
Flutter each delicate wing -
Kiss the roses on their head
Listen to hummingbirds as they sing.
Oh fly, oh beautiful butterfly
So pretty, dream time.

Slide down a steep rainbow a-bright
Drift off to a distant star
Hold on to the tiny starlight
Look down - your so far,
Oh swing, oh swing into the night
So pretty, dream time.

Graceful is your ballet upon your toes
Swan lake becomes you
Turn, as life is free from woes
Watch all your friends join you,
Oh twirl, oh ballerina twirl
So pretty, sleep tight.
