Words for Wednesday


The White Seal’s Lullaby

~ Rudyard Kipling

Oh! hush thee, my baby, the night is behind us.

And black are the waters that sparkled so green.

The moon, o’er the combers, looks downward to find us

At rest in the hollows that rustle between.

Where billow meets billow, there soft be thy pillow;

Ah, weary wee flippering, curl at they ease.

The storm shall not wake thee, nor shark overtake thee,

Asleep in the arms of the slow-swinging seas.


Picture found here.
