Sleep.......



sleep child,sleep and dream
let fairy dust close your eyes
the nights music plays

dance, as the sprites do
though the night be dark and fretful
mind not, and dance free.

for come the morns light
nights sparkling visions fade
your stardust friends sleep

"Though the night be dark and fretful
mind not, and dance free."

Really nice!!! These words right here say so much.

I love the last stanza (if I may call it that). There is the contrast of the fairies sleeping while she is awake. This is a wonderful lullaby.

My mother didn't, but on reading this I can almost hear her tell me about the fairy dust that will close my eyes.
