Kelpie Lullaby

Molly Pinto Madigan, The Cup Overflows ’17

Silver bells and cockleshells and winking whelks of pink and grey, my love,
Chime and ring, my babe, to sing you home upon the waves.

Fly away, fly away, my own true love.

Stallions sleek that bray and bleat with voices fey and agenbite, my love,
May think to snare your soul so fair that bobs upon the night.

Fly away, fly away, my own true love.

So, sail to sleep on currents deep with blankets bladderwrack and brine, my love,
And all the beasts that haunt the seas wouldn’t harm a babe of mine.

The Kelpies, Falkirk, Scotland
