Sleepyhead

   As I lay awake in the white moon light, I heard a faint singing in the wood, 

‘Out of bed,
Sleepyhead,
Put your white foot now,
Here are we,
Neath the tree
Singing round the root now!’

 I looked out of window, in the white moon light,
The trees were like snow in the wood–
‘Come away,
Child, and play
Light with the gnomies;
In a mound,
Green and round,
That’s where their home is.
Honey sweet,
Curds to eat,
Cream and frumenty,
Shells and beads,
Poppy seeds,
You shall have plenty.’

 But soon as I stooped in the dim moon light
To put on my stocking and my shoes,
The sweet sweet singing died sadly away,
And the light of the morning peeped through:
Then instead of the gnomies there came a red robin
To sing of the buttercups and dew.

Down a Rabbit Hole

Tumble down the rabbit hole

The little girl

could not sleep

because her thoughts

were way too deep.

Her mind had gone out for a stroll,

and fallen down a rabbit hole.

Seeking You

 

It’s You I can’t escape
Your love has me surrounded
In every way
So I surrender now
And raise my hands
All I want is You (All I want is You)You have carried me
Through many storms
And many raging seas
You rescue me
In my hour of need
And all I want is You (All I want is You)I’m coming to You
For the love that I need
I’m desperate for Your touch
I’m seeking You
I’m seeking YouYou’re always by my side
My closest friend
In You I can rely
You’re with me
Every moment of my life
All I want is You (All I want is You)
