The Sweet Lullaby
Reader Star Rating:
The sails of the dream ship are silken and spread,
While sweet gentle breezes blow flags overhead;
The sea gleams from moonlight and stars in the sky
'Round the beautiful ship called "The Sweet Lullaby."
The ship's built by fairies and magic it seems
That sails to Port Slumber with all children's dreams;
And after each trance has been sailed over there,
Every child will rise soundly without any care.
The sandman is captain who pilots the ship,
That holds precious cargo with each passing trip;
He stands at the helm of The Sweet Lullaby,
As he sails by the moon in a dark starry sky.
While sailing at sea, many angels descend,
Who watch and who guard all the dreams without end;
They count and they follow each dream that will come,
Then again at Port Slumber they add up the sum.
The sand of the sandman makes dreams settle down
When dreams are stirred up, or are tossed all around;
Those jostled are sprinkled by fairies on board,
Who all stand by the chests where the magic sand's stored.
When dreams come to port through the darkest of night,
And children awake to a bright morning light;
It's due to a ship called The Sweet Lullaby,
Which sets sail by the moon in a dark starry sky.
