Neptune's Lullaby

By Mimi Zannino-Bracken | Posted 2/7/2001

To sleep to the hum of the sea

     slumber to Neptune's lullaby

Lulled by the pull of the moon

     on the tide of the gray-blue sea


To dream in ebb and flow

     release the pain of day

Watch it curl onto itself

     dissolving beneath each wave
