Sweet Dreams

Beneath the icy pond, our frog morphs into a sleepy state, and stays snuggled beneath her warm winter comforter.  I imagine her heart beat slowing down; sinking into the coziness of hibernation. She drifts off, gaining peace of mind within her security.

Should I sing to her this lullaby on my next winter walk?

Deep in the wood, under the ice

A bed of mulch, a soft green pillow,

Lay down your head, and close your sleepy eyes

And when they open the sun will rise


Here it is safe, here it is warm

Here earth’s wonder guards you from every  harm,

Here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true

Here is the place where I love you.

(Adapted from a French lullaby)


How cozy and wonderful does that sound?
