Wynken, Blynken & Nod

​Raising a new batch of baby squirrels…

Wynken, Blynken, and Nod

By Eugene Field
Wynken, Blynken, and Nod one night

   Sailed off in a wooden shoe,—

Sailed on a river of crystal light

   Into a sea of dew.

“Where are you going, and what do you wish?”

   The old moon asked the three.

“We have come to fish for the herring-fish

   That live in this beautiful sea;

   Nets of silver and gold have we,”

            Said Wynken,

            Blynken,

            And Nod.
The old moon laughed and sang a song,

   As they rocked in the wooden shoe;

And the wind that sped them all night long

   Ruffled the waves of dew;

The little stars were the herring-fish

   That lived in the beautiful sea.

“Now cast your nets wherever you wish,—

   Never afraid are we!”
