Through the Moonlit Glass Windows

by Nayoung Jin

The night Moon shone bright

The night I welcomed you.

The night silent night with

Only the cricket cried for another.

That night I saw you beautiful

The night as you were in her arms.

The night cradle rocked so softly

The night the valley murmured gently.


The night I welcomed you

Just like your mama and papa did.

The night I welcomed you my dear

Just as the trees, flowers, and bees

… Through the moonlit glass windows.

* It’s a song I wrote for a baby.  I then sang this song during my book launch and school visit.
