Wynken, Blynken, and Nod By Eugene Field

winkin blinkin and nod poem

In need of a wee babe's Slumber Hence Wynken, Blynken and nod Wynken and rub those baby brown eyes no more Blyken and thou tears begin to dry up Nod thou self to sleep As thy three set off on a moonlit night Upon the ocean of wonder. This poem reminds us that the universe is meant to be enjoyed, not analyzed. So shut your eyes while mother sings Of wonderful sights that be, And you shall see the beautiful things As you rock in the misty sea, Where the old shoe rocked the fishermen three: Wynken, Blynken, And Nod. The moon calls to them and the stars come to them as fish to catch. I don't understand why this version is out of print, but it is. Other than that, this would be a great book to introduce children to poetry.

Someone mentioned that the names had come from a story; I never followed up on it, but today I ran across this book and was delighted to have that little piece of my past pop up. The story is a perfect short bedtime story and an instant favorite in our house!!! After Field's mother, Frances, died in 1856, he and his brother, Roswell, were sent to Amherst, Massachusetts, to live with Mary Field, their aunt. Field that begins: Wynken, Blynken, and Nod one night Sailed off in a wooden shoe--- Sailed on a river of crystal light, Into a sea of dew.

Poem: Wynken, Blynken, and Nod by Eugene Field

winkin blinkin and nod poem

Every year, the children of J. Wynken, Blynken and Nod sail on their bed to a magical place in the unicerse where fish swim in the moonlight and the moon is actually a friendly guy. The fair-haired, fair-skinned children sail the enormous wooden shoe through the crashing waves of the sky as though it were an ocean. 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. My logic was based on the theory that babies, after they are born, remember and react to sounds they heard in utero.
