Selkies' Lullaby

MIDI


Written in Oct 1999, by my character, Mallaoriana, in the "Bath of Return" Dungeons and Dragons's game run by Steven Stubbs on the AD&D FidoNet echo.

Hush, mush, the waves to rush,
Close down beside the sea,
And as you sleep, the selkies creep
To see what they can see
And when they find a baby sweet
They steal him fast away
To go and meet the silver fish
And in the waves to play

With a splash and a plish and a tolleralleralol
And a plink and and splonk and a washawalleroo
And a scrish and splinck and a sprillbarralaralal
As you play in the shimmering blue

Rock, roll, the watery knoll
Upon whose crest you lie
Will drift away, into the bay
Returning by and by
And when you sail upon the deep
And with the selkies go
You'll dream of gentle rocking waves
And ne'er a night-dread know

With a splash and a plish and a tolleralleralol
And a plink and and splonk and a washawalleroo
And a scrish and splinck and a sprillbarralaralal
As you play in the shimmering blue
