Lullaby for a Pandemic

Come with me my little one – away, away from here,

Come with me to the far grey hills where rooks and eagles dare

to make their nest a rocky ledge and soar through misty cloud,

Come my love, come take my hand – escape the city crowds.

 

Come with me my little one – away, away from here,

Come with me to forests dark where wolf and fox and bear

run wild and free through tangled trees and howl under the moon,

Come my love, come take my hand – your dreams will be here, soon.

 

Come with me my little one – away, away from here,

Come with me to oceans vast where whales and dolphins share

the sparkling waves and spume-filled air with gulls and seals and sand,

Come my love, come take my hand – embrace a new homeland.

 

I’ll come with you, I’ll take your hand – I hear your Siren’s call,

I’ll climb the far grey hills with you, I’ll run through forests tall,

I’ll swim and dive beneath the waves and walk along the sand,

I’m here my love, I’ve left it all – for you are my homeland.
