Lullaby for a Nap at Noon


Sleep, little fish,
in your blue blanket,
blue as lake water.

Sleep, little foal,
in your green jumper,
green as summer grass.

Sleep, little chick,
in your brown hat,
brown as a bird's nest.

Sleep and grow strong,
then you'll have the whole world
to run around in.

Author's Notes

This poem came from the July Muse Fusion. It was inspired by a prompt from LJ user clare_dragonfly. Sponsored by LJ user: Laffingkat

Northerners do not sing lyrics. Some lullabies are just a wordless tune. Others, like this one, have words that are spoken.
