    Poem Commentary

    For my Isabella

    Boo's Lullabye

    The moon slid over the horizon,
    Gently kissing the treetops
    On her way.
    The night sky is afire
    In amber and scarlet
    As the Sun,
    Reluctant to part,
    Has her last say.
    The clouds,
    Highlighted in silver,
    Close the door
    On another day.

    Sweet dreams
    Little Boo.
    Sandman is on his way,
    Sprinkling dream dust
    And moon beams light your path.
    Sail your ship,
    A steady course,
    As stars wink at you from above.
    Safe and sound,
    Back to port,
    By morning's first light.

    Wish I could have had this when my kids were young. It's almost like a prayer as you'd tuck your child in and give a kiss goodnight. Loved it, TS



    Not to worry, grandkids love to be kissed g'night too ( my Boo is 3yrs)Thanks for the kind words, mlea

    If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
