Animal Lullabies

Turquoise, Lois, Camelia and Grass Turtle sang a turtle lullaby
 
Tuck your head into your shell,
Pull your feet in too.
Feel the darkness wrap around,
And know that I love you.
 
But they needed some help coming up with some other verses. So they went to visit some animal friends.
 
Bear
 
Go to sleep my little bear,
Curl inside your lair,
Your tummy’s full
For many months
Of sleep and growing hair.
 
Sleep tonight my little bear
Tomorrow you will wake.
And swiftly we will find some bees
And of breakfast we’ll partake.
 
 
Bat
 
We hang upside down all day
For us that is just right.
We awake at nighttime then
And sleep when it gets bright.
 
Dolphin
Sleep with half your brain right now,
Give it a big rest.
Then you wake it up and trade
And that is how we stay our best.
 
Fish
Swim while you sleep,
Don’t make a peep
Keep the water flowing
While here in the deep.
