Lullaby [poem by Agnes L. Storrie]

[Editor: This poem by Agnes L. Storrie was published in Poems, 1909.]

Lullaby.

Lulla—lulla—bye—oh!
Shut that little eye oh!
Tuck that little drowsy head into its little nest.
Lulla—lulla—bye—oh!
Baby go to bye oh!
Of all the pleasant things I know, sure slumber is the best.

Lulla—lulla—lay—oh!
Where’s the yellow day oh?
Gone to sleep upon its rosy pillows in the west.
Lulla—lulla—lay—oh!
Baby knows the way oh!
That leads along a dreamy path into a land of rest.

Lulla—lulla—bye—oh!
Mother still is nigh oh!
Mother’s song is just a prayer to Heaven’s high gate addressed.
Lulla—lulla—bye—oh!
May God hear her cry oh!
And keep the little soul for ever innocent and blest.
