Honey Slow Down

Lullaby 5
Honey Slow Down

Evening is slowly and steadily
following the flight of the bumblebee
tired after a day outside
the girl/boy is rubbing his/her eyes
light is bright and she/he wants to be
outside where all the creatures are free
free to cool off when the light is gone
free to roll around on the lawn
the long day has been busy and now
it’s time for the sun to take a bow.

It’s time to rest, let it come
everyone in the house needs some
darling honey please slow down
mighty whirlwind please slow down
please slow down and close your eyes.

Eyelids as heavy as the feet
cheeks as red as a dark beet
take off the shoes and the socks
put the toys in the toy box
before he/she finds her second wind
and gets as wild as he/she’s been
all day long except for the nap
that didn’t last long enough
change the pillows and the sheet
get that girl/boy ready for sleep.

It’s time to rest, let it come
everyone in the house needs some
darling honey please slow down
mighty whirlwind please slow down
please slow down and close your eyes.
