Treasure Island

Sophia White

('90 / America)

Child, Child


Child, child, lai la lay,
I’ll hold you tightly one of these days.
Child, child, lorra lai,
It will be a while, but you’ll be mine.

Child, child, lai la lay,
I’ll stroke your hair and softly say:
Child, child, lorra lai,
I’m here to love you and all is right.

Child, child, lai la lay,
You may not even be alive today.
Child, child, lorra lai,
But I’ll be waiting for you, child mine.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
