Lullaby: For a Man of Consequence on his Birthday.

“Sleeping Savoyard Boy” by Wilhelm Leibl (1869)
Lullaby
for a Man of Consequence on his Birthday

Hush, child.

Lie down your head

and get yourself some sleep.

The cares

of grown-ups in this world

are not yet yours to keep.

Your dad's

a man of consequence

to people good and bad.

But sleep:

what they think matters,

what does is he's your dad.

So, sleep now.

Morning will come.

Your dad his word will keep.

Hush, child.

Forget, forgive,

and get yourself some sleep.
