Mother Goose Lullaby (for my precious Rose)

Hush, you darling little thing
listen closely while I sing

'Bout the sandman who will call
when you into sleep shall fall

First, he'll give you sleepy-dust 
when your travel, sleep you must

Then he'll take you in his arms 
show you all the dreamland charms 

You shall have a hurried look 
on the folks in story-book

How they play and romp and run 
you have never seen such fun

You shall see old mother goose
with her goslings running loose 
all about a great big pond
'bout which geese are very fond

Then you'll see the jumping cow
try to figure out just how 
she could jump so very high 
o'er the moon up in the sky

Then, dear, try to solve the riddle 
'bout the cat that played the fiddle 

Next in line, the lazy spoon 
whom the dish outran too soon 

Taste Miss Muffet's curds and whey 
she was eating on that day 
then the spider came to call
she forgot to eat them all 

After you have seen this jumble
tell the sandman not to stumble
over Humpty's wall but see 
that he brings you right back to me!

  12. As we shuffle about, shift around, come and go, old friends round the bend to say hi. So many have left the blogs but we remain.

    You write nice poetry.
