'Once I slept in a Feather Bed'
ONCE, I slept in a feather bed,
where angels hovered..overhead.
I woke in the morning's early dawn
as .. moonlight shadows crossed the lawn.
A song bird hopped on the window-sill..
knocked and tapped .. with his little bill
Singing about a summer's day and
begging me to come and play.
I jumped out of bed ..
said morning prayers ..
ran, like a whirlwind ..
down the stairs ..
out the door ..round the bend
anxious to see my feathered friend
Hoping, like him, that I could fly
thru' the trees and ... way up high.
Instead, I dabbled in the stream all day
and tumbled in the golden hay.
When night-time stole across our land
Mama gently took my hand hand
To show .. what she had made for 'tea'
Raspberry cup-cakes! three for me!
Later, I lay in the ' SANDMAN"S' arms
an' fell victim to his sleeping charms
He brought me up the stairs once more
I went thru' my little door-
Hopped into the feather bed
And .. the angels who were overhead
Touched my eyes ..
with a slumber wand
and beamed me off ..
to ' the dreaming land'
