Hush Little Baby

For the visually challenged reader, the image shows a young woman holding a child wrapped in a white blanket, close to her bosom.

The baby cried 
But mama was already tired
Someone else picked him up
Sang a song and so he stopped
He listened to the familiar voice
The song she sang was a very good choice
He felt safe wrapped in her arms
She was certainly working her charms

He loved her voice, it was so calming
That is why he stopped crying
The song went on as he drifted to sleep
He slept soundly, didn't make a peep
His mama was thankful that his aunt was there
So she took a nap on the reclining chair
