autumn lullaby


Laying on my hammock sunday...I watch the thousands of leaves form this beautiful kaleidescope of color against the clear blue sky..but I can't enjoy a minute of it..knowing that in a few weeks every single one of those leaves will be the cause of back breaking raking..

But I can enjoy my little son resting with me..and so I find myself singing him a little lullaby...


Rock a bye baby, in the treetop,
When the wind blows, the cradle will rock,
When the bough breaks, the cradle will drop..
oh great.... one more thing for me to rake up

Technically you could just pick up the cradle...

Unless it was smashed to smithereens...in which case...
Oooh. Too gruesome to think about

What kind of abusive parent puts their kid in a treetop... and to sing about it, too -- must be pathological.

You play violin, too? Should have known. It's so "you."
