For F.B.

Sleep my child and peace attend thee
All through the night
Guardian angels God will send thee
All through the night
Soft the drowsy hours and creeping,
Hill and vale in slumber sleeping
I, My loving vigil keeping
All through the night.

My kids LOVE this little poem/prayer. Paul memorized when he was two. We say it everynight before bed. When we finally own a home, I want to stencil it on the nursery wall.
