Poem by Katherine Mansfield


Song by the Window Before Bed


Little Star, little Star,
Come down quick.
The Moon is a bogey-man;
Hell eat you certain if he can.
Little Star, little Star,
Come down quick!

Little Star, little Star,
Whisper Yes.
The trees are just niggers all,
They look so black, the are so tall.
Little Star, little Star,
Whisper Yes

Little Star, little Star,
Gone--all gone.
The bogey-man swallowed you,
The nigger trees are laughing too.
Little Star, little Star,
Gone--all gone.
