Pomes Penyeach

Now that there’s a “Contract Pending” shingle appended to the For Sale sign out front, there’s no longer a need to fill the plastic TAKE ONE box with stats ‘n’ pix about our house. So we printed up some copies of Rudyard Kipling’s Seal Lullaby for anyone wise enough or simply curious enough to “take one.” We realize this sort of thing seems like affected artsiness to certain people and aggravates them no end, but that makes it all the better.

Liz found the poem on a web log called “Poetic Anthropology” which you can summons to your screen by clicking on these word: HOME IS THE HUNTER.

  1. Seal Lullaby
    by Rudyard Kipling

    Oh! Hush thee, my baby, the night is behind us,
    And black are the waters that sparkled so green.
    The moon, o’er the combers, looks downward to find us,
    At rest in the hollows that rustle between.

    Where billow meets billow, then soft be thy pillow,
    Oh weary wee flipperling, curl at thy ease!
    The storm shall not wake thee, nor shark overtake thee,
    Asleep in the arms of the slow swinging seas!
