Lover’s Lullaby #dVerse #Quadrille

Sleep, lover, near me
gently, do
and in your arms, I’ll dream a dream of you

Sleep lover, softly
through the night
to waken with me at the dawn’s first light:

A lover’s lullaby is nothing new
but never was a serenade more true

  1. Beautiful sonnet-ish delivery, Ingrid. I really dug this one, and really appreciate the recollection of Ms Ian. Thanks.
