Bed Time

Cuddle-doun my bairnie
The dargie day is dune:
Yon’s a siller sternie
Ablow the siller mune.
Like a wabster body
Hingin on a threed
Far abune my laddie
In his wee creepie-bed.

    What a sweet and soothing poem! It paints such a vivid image of a peaceful night, full of love and tender care for a child. The Scottish accent peppered throughout adds an extra touch of warmth and familiarity. It's like a soft lullaby that would lull any little one to dreamland. Truly adorable!
