fleeting_memory (Apr 7, 2004)
Winkin', Blinkin', and Nod, one night sailed off in a wooden shoe;
Sailed off 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've come to fish for the herring fish that live in this beautiful sea.
Nets of silver and gold have we," said Winkin', Blinkin', 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.
Now the little stars are the herring fish that live in that beautiful sea;
"Cast your nets wherever you wish never afraid are we!"
So cried the stars to the fishermen three - Winkin', and Blinkin', and Nod.

So all night long their nets they threw to the stars in the twinkling foam.
'Til down from the skies came the wooden shoe bringing the fisherman home.
'twas all so pretty a sail it seemed as if it could not be.
Some folks say 'twas a dream they dreamed of sailing that misty sea.
But I shall name you the fisherman three - Winkin', Blinkin', and Nod.

Now Winkin' and Blinkin' are two little eyes and Nod is a little head.
And the wooden shoe that sailed the skies is a wee one's trundle bed.
So close your eyes while mother sings of the wonderful sights that be.
And you shall see those beautiful things as you sail on the misty sea.
where the old shoe rocked the fishermen three - Winkin', Blinkin', and Nod.

It's raining, it's pouring;
The old man is snoring.
Bumped his head
And he went to bed
And he couldn't get up in the morning.

Rain, rain, go away;
Come again another day;
Little Johnny wants to play.

Got some nice curtains now, I see^^.Um, about the ripples, I think they could be more definite.I think right now, I can barely make them out so you might want to make it more visible first, and go from there.Improvements being added are helping with every revision^^.Looks very nice.

Stupid computer.....I did submit a comment after version 6, but somehow didn't post><....well, anyways I said that you did a great job taking my advice in this^^.I like all the details you added that some people might've missed when drawing this picture such as the hand marks on the window, the rain drops rolling down the sides of the window, the ripples in the water from the rain hitting the water, etc.I have to say you did a great job overall^^.Can't wait to see what you come up with next^^.
