Earth Is Like A Sleepy Child...





Earth is like a sleepy child
Ready for a rest
Nightie-night and hush-a-bye
Winter is a nest

Autumn is a lullaby
Shushing trees and streams
Earth is like a sleepy child
Ready for sweet dreams

Now I lay me down to sleep
Summer’s song is spent
Autumn lines earth’s cradle with
Bygone’s filament

Earth half-shuts its drowsy eyes
Leaves waft overhead
As the matron of the skies
Tucks them into bed

Earth is like a sleepy child
Ready for a rest
Nightie-night and hush-a-bye
Winter is a nest
