Treasure Island

A mothers lullaby


Shadows whisper in the dark of the night
Babies cry out in fright
They are afraid and only one thing
will wisk it all away.

A mothers lullaby,
sung in sweet whispers.

A mothers lullaby
Accompanied by the rocking chair.

A mothers lullaby
as loving as can be.
It scares away the nightmares
Makes the path for dreams to come easily

    HI Ashley
    This is penned with so much tenderness and security that only comes from a mother's quiet soft voice that is either instilled in all of us, or for some the absence of it, which can bring many perplexing emotions, I enjoyed this as it represents all that a mother can do for her children to make them who they are today...... Enjoyed very much and hope you are doing well...

    The sentiments of a parent are highlighted here in all dexterity and your skill of saying so much in such few words is amazing. ARya (Report) Reply

    I bet Peerbocus really liked this one. I sure did as well. This is a 10.
    It is a 10 because it is a poem that is as simple and directed as all great things
    are at their core. I hope other readers will take note of this poem. It is a great
    learning tool.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
