Papa was a rolling stone
I call on you princesses, dragons, fairies,
monsters, puppets and aliens,
cats and dogs, rabbits and crocodiles,
dolls and hippos and ladybirds,
I summon all heroes and angels, mermaids and bears,
the moons and the stars and all of you hearts
the circles, squares, suns with flowers
badges and streamers, stickers and crayons,
I place you before a vision
a stage of light and sound
to rally your all
and the gifts you may bring,
the fears and the joys
trepidation of flight
comfort of night
I ask a prayer of thee:
Bring home my love
and my calling to care.
And please, please help me sing
my unfinished lullaby.
