the cradle


I built a wooden cradle it’s made to rock and glide

And when it all was finished I wrote this lullaby

I sang it to my angel when ever she would cry


Who’s my little who-zee who’s my turtle-dove?

Who’s my little angel who’s the one I love?

In the summer when the sun shines

In the spring when flowers grow

In the fall when leafs are falling

In the winter in the snow

Who’s my little who-zee- sent down from above?

Who’s my little angel- who’s the one I love?


I built a wooden coffin-may my angel Rest in peace

Now I sit beside the cradle- and I rock it as I weep


death of an angel

    This is absolutely
    Beautiful WW...
    I had pure emotion
    Running through me
    As I read it.....
    It really is so
    very good..
    Another favourite
    Of mine...
