Lullaby & Poppies From Flowerland!

Illustration: Lullaby from Mary Had a Little Lamb Henry Altemus Company: Philadelphia. 1906.

“LULLABY”

WIDE awake! wide awake!

Baby’s so wide awake,

What can I bring that will lull her to rest?

Poppies from Flowerland,

Raindrops from Showerland,

Silent slow shadows that creep up the west.

Laughings and cooings – oh, what roguish doings!

Why, this is sleepy-time, Baby, you know.

What can I bring to her,

What can I sing to her,

So that my baby to Dreamland may go?

Lullaby, lullaby, sing a song dull, oh, bye,

Bye, little Baby, now shut up your eyes!

Moon shadowed now’s the land,

Dreams come from Drowsyland,

Droop, dreamy eyelids, and lie sleepy wise.

Mary Had a Little Lamb
