cradle song


Precious babe with heaven-kissed skin

open wide your blue-sky eyes

to the family that welcomes you in.


Precious babe with heaven-kissed skin

this wide world groans under pains of sin

but LOVE can be found if you learn from the wise.


Precious babe with heaven-kissed skin

open wise your blue-sky eyes.



Triolet dedicated to my new grand daughter born 6-19-14

    learning from the wise is a good thing and makes us fit for life…and the sooner we teach those little ones about that wisdom, the better

    Lovely triolet! I wonder whether you will read it to your grand daughter when she is old enough to understand.

    Dynamite triolet; and kudos for making it so invisible as a form, just hammering the sweet message, until we hum it while gardening or commuting; thanks.
