This was the first one of these that I wrote, it is probably the tamest of the lot, and maybe I should have led with it. However I didn’t, so here it is now, and there are more of these to come. (Like it or not!)
This is what we are relating to our children as a soothing lull-a-bye.
Have a great day friends,
When rocks the cradle
the baby will sleep.
But, when falls the cradle
the baby will weep.
We sing to our young
for comfort and rest.
But who thought that this madness,
for baby was best?
