• A Cradle Song

    Saturday, February 28, 2009

    Another party for another Milner princess, or should I say birdie? Davina has somehow picked up the nickname birdie. Her room hosts birdie trinkets, and our favorite family poem is always directed towards Davina. In fact Marion beautifully recited this poem to Davina and our guests during the party.

    A Cradle Song

    What does little birdie say,
    In her nest at peep of day?
    Let me fly, says little birdie,
    Mother, let me fly away.

    Birdie, rest a little longer,
    Till the little wings are stronger.
    So she rests a little longer;
    Then she flies away.

    What does little baby say
    In her bed at peep of day?
    baby says, like little birdie,
    Let me rise and fly away!

    Baby, sleep a little,
    Till the little limbs are sronger.
    If she sleeps a little longer,
    Baby too shall fly away.

    Alfred Lord Tennyson

    She is the most beautiful 'birdie' we have ever seen!

    Don't fly away too soon!
