the pyjama run

darice! these are for you my friend...love and miss you madly...as always
wynken, blynken and nod one night,
sailed off in a wooden shoe
sailed in a river of crystal light
into a sea of dew;
"where are you going, and what do you wish"?
the old moon asked the three
"we have come to fish for the herring fish
that live in this beautiful sea;
nets of silver and gold have we"
said wynken, blynken and nod.

the old moon laughed and sang a song
as they rocked in the wooden shoe,
and the wind that sped them all night long
ruffled the waves of dew.
the little stars were the herring fish
that lived in that beautiful sea.
"now cast your nets wherever you wish
never afeared are we."
so cried the stars to the fishermen three
wynken, blynken and nod.

all night long their nets they drew
to the stars in the twinkling foam
then down from the skies came the wooden shoe
bringing the fishermen home;
t'was all so pretty a sail it seemed,
as if it could not be,
and some folks thought t'was a dream they dreamed
of sailing that beautiful sea
but i shall name you the fishermen three
wynken, blynken and nod.

wynken and blynken are two little eyes
and nod is a little head
and the wooden shoe that sailed the seas
is a wee-one's trundled bed.
so shut your eyes whilst mother sings
of wonderful sights that be;
and you shall see the beautiful things
as you rock in the misty sea,
where the old shoe rocked the fishermen three
wynken,
blynken
and
nod.
