ROCK, A – Bye – Babies

reached out and held Myra's hand when placed beside her.
Someday I will do my other interpretation of ROCK !!! However, now is the perfect time for the ROCK I have chosen. On December 9th, I became the grandmother of twins. I get to ROCK as much as I want, and some days you might even say it is ‘hard rock’.
You have seen this technique from me before. Pen on fabric and transferring an inkjet photo to the inked fabric using Golden thick medium. I wanted a companion piece to match the one that I had made for their 2 ½ year old sister.
My version of the song:
“Rock a bye babies, in the tree top
When the wind blows the cradle will ROCK.
Gently, gently rocking away.
Swinging you safely
Throughout the day.
Babies are drowsing, cozy and fair
Mother sits near in her rocking chair
Forward and back, the cradle she swings
But the sleeping babies still hear her sing.
Rock a bye babies, Daddy is near
So is Norah and your Mother
Dear wee little fingers, eyes are shut tight
Now sound asleep – until morning light.”
