  A BOSTON LULLABY  

Baby's brain is tired of thinking
    On the Wherefore and the Whence;
Baby's precious eyes are blinking
    With incipient somnolence.

Little hands are weary turning
    Heavy leaves of lexicon;
Little nose is fretted learning
    How to keep its glasses on.

Baby knows the laws of nature
    Are beneficent and wise;
His medulla oblongata
    Bids my darling close his eyes.

And his pneumogastrics tell him
    Quietude is always best
When his little cerebellum
    Needs recuperative rest.

Baby must have relaxation,
    Let the world go wrong or right.
Sleep, my darling--leave Creation
    To its chances for the night.

                 James Jeffrey Roche.
