"Epilogue to "All the Pretty Little Horses"" as written by and Traditional....
Hush-a-bye
Don't you cry
Go to sleepy little baby
Go to sleepy little baby
When you wake
You shall have
All the pretty little horsies
All the pretty little horsies

Blacks and bays
Dapples and greys
All the pretty little horsies

Way down yonder
In the meadow
Lies a poor little lamby
Bees and butterflies
Flitting round his eyes
Poor little thing is crying
"Mammy"

Go to sleep
Don't you cry
Rest your head upon the clover
Rest your head upon the clover
In your dreams
You shall ride
Whilst your mammy's watching over

Blacks and bays
Dapples and greys
All the pretty little horsies

All the pretty little horsies
All the pretty little horsies
All the pretty little horsies

    General CommentIn context, this little poem is very creepy. The story is about a deranged sculptor. He creates pieces which he claims are simulations of plants, but which resemble grotesque animals. He becomes infatuated with a woman, whom he takes to show his inspiration...
