Arms 'Round The Night copyright The Kerplunks written by Dinah Desrochers and Aaron Cadwaladr Close my Eyes to the light that shines My ears to the breeze(let it)blow through my mind Breathe as I'm in (as I'm in as I'm In as I'm) Breathe as I'm out (as I'm Out, as I'm out) Casting a call for the night Clouds above and clouds behind Drifting through an endless sky Waves washing in (washing in washing in washing) Waves washing out(washing out washing) Casting for sleep for the night All Is Calm and All is right I am on pause and ready for flight Trees swaying left, (swaying left swaying left swaying) Trees swaying right (swaying right) Casting their arms 'round the night

I've watched you getting older too I wonder is it lonely out there? Does you mom tuck you in with your blanket of stars? Does your blanket of light keep you warm at night? Night Sky, how old are you? Have you always been there or did I just discover you? (Please tell me) Is it cold up there? Does your mom tuck you in with your blanket of stars and Does you blanket of light keep you warm at night?

Only Long Night - (c) The Kerplunks written by Dinah Desrochers- Lyrics, Music, Arrangement Only long night I close my eyes It's a long night Only the night Reflections of light On a pond it ripples Hung over head so tight My boat dangles On a sea I drift Below the waves I'm clear And set my boat adrift No more sleep I fear Long is the night I close my eyes Sleepless in time Long is the night Gentle tugging at ears Can whistle your fears Owls at night Fly without sight Only long night I close my eyes Silence ear flight Only the night etc

Sewing Shadows by Dinah Desrochers and Corwin Fox from the album Lullabies For Big Eyes copyright The Kerplunks When the dinos are done fighting they knit, they knit, they knit When the tigers are done writing they sit, they sit, they sit At the ending of the day they have taken Sewing shadows to the dreams they awaken When the robots are done working they quit, they quit, they quit When the broken hearts are healing they knit, they knit, they knit At the ending of the day they have taken Sewing shadows to the dreams they awaken The stars are finished falling they flit, they flit, they flit The wolves are getting sleepy a bit, by bit, by bit At the ending of the day they have taken Sewing shadows to the dreams they awaken

Close and Calm- copyright The Kerplunks written by Jocelyn Hallett and Dinah Desrochers I hear the wind in the trees, whispering Close your eyes The lapping of the water quietly, saying softly Calm your mind Time to dream all through the night Close and Calm everything alright Summer sun is set and stars fill up the skies Close your eyes Looking through my curtain see the night owl fly Calm your mind Time to dream all through the night Warm and calm everything alright Breezes in the grass and the crickets softly sing Close your eyes Fireflies alight, watch them drift as they dance Calm your mind Time to dream all through the night Cosy and calm everything alright Warm and calm everything alright Close and calm everything alright

Rain on the Roof album Lullabies for Big Eyes copyright The Kerplunks Written by Aaron Cadwaladr and Dinah Desrochers Rain on the Roof Head In the clouds Warmth in my heart And it's storming outside Starting to float Drifting up high Swimming away (but it's) all in my mind All that I need For me to sleep All that I need Rain on the roof Rain letting up Wind in the branches Drops hit the roof Rain dampened leaves Clouds start to clear Moon in the sky Float on the sea Falling asleep All I need Maybe a Dream All I need Rain on the Roof

Night Owl's Refrain written by Jocelyn Hallett, Aaron Cadwaladr and Dinah Desrochers copyright The Kerplunks Awake again Velvety cloak of my dreams Fall away but I am safe and sound Clouds up high Blanketing me from the sky Long night but I am safe and sound Deep in the night, I wander Drifting in flight, thought slips away Waiting for light, I ponder Night owls refrain Night time sweet Carry me off to my dreams Where I know that I am safe and sound

==================================================
Swirl poem

Shade Draw, Dream Flip
Rain dampened leaves

I'm getting older too
swirl in the tide
below the waves i'm clear

See the night owl fly
Drifting in flight, thought slips away
I am on pause and ready for flight

give yourself some peace of mind
the wolves are getting sleepy
close your eyes, follow your dreams
