Lullaby

Little Nemo in Slumberland by Winsor McCay

 

Lullaby

Sleep,
Nemo, sleep,
Long and deep,
Soft and tall.

Sleep,
Slow and steep,
Nemo, sleep –
Shadows call…

Dream,
Of clowns and kings,
And lurking things
Behind the wall.

Dreams –
What brings them here ?
It’s you, my dear –
You dream them all !

Fake !
You make them up !
Let’s shake them up
And have a ball !

Quake,
And dreams will break up.
Time to wake up –
Let them fall…

Wake,
Nemo Dreamo,
Now they seem so
Strange and small.
