Category: Funny Burlesque Poems
       Classic humorous and funny poems using comic imitation and exaggeration in an absurd way.


Wan from the wild and woful West--
    Sleep, little babe, sleep on!
Mother will sing to--you know the rest--
    Sleep, little babe, sleep on!
Softly the sand steals slowly by,
Cursed be the curlew's chittering cry;
By-a-by, oh, by-a-by!
    Sleep, little babe, sleep on!

Rosy and sweet come the hush of night--
    Sleep, little babe, sleep on!
(Twig to the lilt, I have got it all right)
    Sleep, little babe, sleep on!
Dark are the dark and darkling days
Winding the webbed and winsome ways,
Homeward she creeps in dim amaze--
    Sleep, little babe, sleep on!
        (But it waked up, drat it!)

            Charles Battell Loomis.
