In a soft blue sky, the sun was getting ready to take a nap. As she tucked herself under the blanket of the horizon, she whispered to her friend, the moon, “It’s your turn to watch over the world.”
The moon, glowing gently, nodded and began his nightly journey. He peered down and saw the Earth below, a world bustling with nighttime wonders.
The owls stretched their wings, readying for their flights. The stars, those tiny twinkling fairies of the night, began to dance and play. The gentle rustling of the leaves played a soft song, accompanying the moon on his journey.
Beneath a big oak tree, a little baby lay in a crib, staring up with wide eyes. The baby was restless, finding it hard to drift off to dreamland.
The moon saw this and decided to help. He began to sing a lullaby:
“Hush now, little one, close your eyes tight,
The moon’s here to guard you all through the night.
The stars will dance, and the breeze will hum,
To make sure your dream till the morning comes.”
The gentle glow of the moon and his soothing song wrapped around the baby like a soft, warm blanket. Slowly, the baby’s eyelids became heavy, and soon, with a little yawn, the baby was off to dreamland.
The animals of the night, the crickets, and the fireflies, all joined in, creating a nighttime symphony. And as the world settled into the arms of sleep, the moon continued his watch, ensuring sweet dreams for all.
So, my little one, as you close your eyes, remember the moon’s lullaby. Let it guide you into a peaceful sleep, where dreams are sweet, and rest is deep.
