Rocking Horse Night Ride

Now three little brothers with blond silky heads
Are grumpy and tired, but won't go to bed
So Mama, who's older and wiser of course
Says "Come for a ride on my magical horse..."

"But first snuggle down, wrap blankets around, 
Then close your eyes tight and don't make a sound,
Listen and you'll hear, up high on the roof,
The soft rocking sound of a magical hoof..."

"First backwards then forwards so gently he sways
Jump onto his back and he'll whisk you away
Past moon and the stars on the wings of the night
As light as a feather, as high as a kite..."

"So dry all your tears it's time you must go"
Says Mama who's waving and waiting below
"He'll canter and fly, then gallop and leap
And take three young boys to the "Land of Deep Sleep"
