Rou’s Lullaby


Rou’s Lullaby

Between north star and sickle moon

Fears dissolve and fall in ruin

Light rebounds and fancies fly

Dreams ascend in even sky.

Light’s splendour in a summer glow,

From gold to blue and indigo

As sun descends, night curtain falls

Bats flit out, horned owl calls

And baby in her feather bed

Raises up her sleepy head

And holding bars she stands tall

And beyond her window sees it all

Among the stars her friends play

Toys only in her waking day,

With feather crest and armoured horn

Fearsome dragon and proud unicorn

And then she settles down to sleep

Among her down she snuggles deep

Hugging treasured teddy tight

Eyes close as she whispers.
