The Moon's Lullaby

January says snow, snow, snow.

February says freeze, freeze, freeze.

March says blow, blow, blow

but April says breeze, breeze, breeze.



Gonna lay my head on a pillow 

and not keep running around.

I want to hear the lullaby 

to the seeds in the ground.

So toss me high in a basket

and let me fall into the leaves.

I want to hear the lullaby

that the moon sings to the seeds.


May says chime, chime, chime.

June says sweet, sweet, sweet.

July says climb, climb, climb.

August says heat, heat, heat.




September says glide, glide, glide.

October says glow, glow, glow.

November says hide, hide, hide.

December says slow, slow, slow.
