Midnight Lullaby - Poem by DiAnne Douglass

Starlight and midnight,
chimes of the clock,
rock a bye baby,
asleep in the stock.

Widow in the corner,
bread maker in the den,
presents for you and me,
the clucking of a hen.

All the silly songs,
and all the whispered words,
nonsense in one ear,
and courage takes a turn.

Remember this song my dear,
it will keep you safe.
Think of it and sing to me,
when your heart begins to break.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

A lullaby I made up on a whim. I wrote it for a story and it stuck with me.
