A Lullaby for My Grandson

I have written a lullaby for each of my three grandchildren.  Here is the lullaby I wrote for my very first grandchild, our grandson, Owen.

Little Baby Wonderful

Little baby Wonderful,

Little baby mine;

The sky is full of stars tonight,

The breeze is apple wine.

Shall I rock you on the sea

Where fishes swim and leap?

The waves will sing you lullabies

Until you fall asleep.

 

 

Little baby Wonderful,

Little baby mine;

The sky is full of stars tonight,

The breeze is apple wine.

Shall I rock you in the woods,

Where forest creatures creep?

The owls will whisper fairy tales

Until you fall asleep.

 

 

 

Little baby Wonderful,

Little baby mine;

Your eyes are full of stars tonight,

Your breath is apple wine.

I will rock you in my arms

Where you are safe and warm,

And I will sing you lullabies

Until the day is born.mother-baby-graphicsfairy007b
