She crochets the stars

Knit me a lullaby
Knit me to sleep
Knit me the night-time
Soft and deep

Crochet the stars
With your dainty hook
Knit me some counting sheep
Knit me a crook

Spin me a story
Spin me the moon
Spin me the milky way
Sleep will come soon

Wrap me in starlight
And indigo lace
Wrap me in silence
Wrap me in space

Weave me a basket
Filled with dreams
Weave it with riversong
Fished from a stream

And in the morning
Prove it was you –
Crochet a cobweb
Decked with dew.
