"The difficulty of literature is not to write, but to write what you mean; not to affect your reader, but to affect him precisely as you wish." ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

Tree's Lullaby

Child beneath my leafy boughs,
Resting in my shade,
Watch my branches in the breeze
As they bend and wave.

You are rooted, you are safe,
You are strong and bright,
Moving gently with the wind,
Reaching for the light.

~ Tamary Shoemaker
(From a prompt at NaPoWriMo to write a lullaby.)
