A Mother’s Song

My heart is like a fountain true
that flows and flows with love to you
as chirps the lark unto the tree
so chirps my pretty babe to me

There is not a rose wherever I seek
as comely as my baby’s cheek
there’s not a comb of honey bee
so full of sweets as babe to me

There’s not a star that shines on high
Is brighter than my baby’s eye
There’s not a boat upon the sea
Can dance as baby does to me

No silk was ever spun so fine
As is the hair of baby mine
My baby smells more sweet to me
Than smells in spring the elder tree

A little fish swims in the well
So in my heart does baby dwell
A little flower blows on the tree
My baby is the flower to me

Ten thousand parks where deer do run
Ten thousand roses in the sun
Ten thousand pearls beneath the sea
My babe more precious is to me.

Baby’s Boat

Baby’s bed’s a silver moon,
Sailing in the sky,
Sailing o’er the sea of sleep,
While the stars go by.

Sail, baby, sail,
Far across the sea.
Only don’t forget to come,
Back home again to me.

Baby’s fishing for a dream,
Fishing near and far,
Her line a silver moonbeam is,
Her bait a silver star.

Sail, baby, sail,
Far across the sea.
Only don’t forget to come,
Back home again to me.

Sweet and Low

from The Princess: Sweet and Low
By Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Sweet and low, sweet and low,
Wind of the western sea,
Low, low, breathe and blow,
Wind of the western sea!

Over the rolling waters go,
Come from the dying moon, and blow,
Blow him again to me;
While my little one, while my pretty one sleeps.

Sleep and rest, sleep and rest,
Father will come to thee soon;
Rest, rest, on mother’s breast,
Father will come to thee soon;
Father will come to his babe in the nest,
Silver sails all out of the west
Under the silver moon;
Sleep, my little one, sleep, my pretty one, sleep.
