December 15 – December 21

15.
bye baby bunting
mommy fell down the cliff face
the lake seems crimson

16.
rockabye baby
the body floats and then sinks
birds sing in the trees

17.
oh my sweet darling
the fish remember nothing
clouds cover the sun

18.
sing for your supper
your mother left sandwiches
as she fell from grace

19.
we are what we eat
the water takes what it gives
the water gives life

20.
bye baby bunting
the years have passed by again
the same birds still sing

21.
the water seems blue
the cliff face is deserted
memory plays tricks
