Poem by Eleanor Farjeon

Cradle-Song Song for Christmas

Child, when on this night you lie
Softly, undisturbedly,
On as white a bed of down
As any childs in London Town,
By a fire that all the night
Keeps your chamber warm and light:
Dream, if dreams are yet your law,
Your bed of down a bed of straw,
Only warmed and lighted by
One star in the open sky.
Sweet youll sleep then, for we know
Once a Child slept sweetly so.
