On the thirteenth day of National Poetry Month, I have a little lullaby. I like cadence poetry a lot more than rhyming. In this case, you have 2/3/3/3 syllable pattern. It also fits the pattern I sing to my kids when they are feeling sick.

Hush Child

Hush child
Time to sleep
Close your eyes
Go to sleep

Hush babe
Come to me
Rest your head
On mommy.

Hush love
Quiet down
Go to sleep
Against me.

Hush hush
Time to dream
Of family,
You and me.
