Tugging at the strings of her heavy eyes
Sleep falls gently
Wrapping her safe in its holy embrace
Sleep calls softly
Rock her side to side in your tender lap
Sleep, come quickly
Princess, its time you drift into sweet dreams
Float in sleep’s ocean, down whimsical streams
What you guys just read, is an Italian form of poetry called the Cavatina!
It has a very interesting rule of alternating 10 syllable non-rhyming lines with 4 syllable rhyming lines (atleast thrice) and finishing off with a 10 syllable couplet.
Hope you all enjoyed it.. see you tomorrow!
