Peter S. Beagle
The Blue Jay's Lullaby—

Spiders and sowbugs and beetles and crickets,
 Slugs from the roses and ticks from the thickets,
  Grasshoppers, snails, and a quail's egg or two—
   All to be regurgitated for you.

Lullaby, lullaby, swindles and schemes,
 Flying's not near as much fun as it seems.”
Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn

Kevin Brockmeier
“A successful song comes to sing itself inside the listener. It is cellular and seismic, a wave coalescing in the mind and in the flesh. There is a message outside and a message inside, and those messages are the same, like the pat and thud of two heartbeats, one within you, one surrounding. The message of the lullaby is that it’s okay to dim the eyes for a time, to lose sight of yourself as you sleep and as you grow: if you drift, it says, you’ll drift ashore: if you fall, you will fall into place.”
Kevin Brockmeier

Brian K. Vaughan
“Good night, chubby baby
I can't rock you no more
I'm sorry, chubby baby
But my arms are getting sore
Sleep tight, chubby baby
And please don't get me wrong
You're a perfect sized baby
So never accept fakey beauty standards or develop unhealthy body issues...
... from this dumb song”
Brian K. Vaughan, Saga, Vol. 8

Akshay Vasu
“Sometimes all we need is a hug that will make us feel home. The heartbeats that sound like a lullaby and the eyes which assure us that the world is not such a bad a place yet every time we stare into them.”
Akshay Vasu

Chuck Palahniuk
“The muffled thunder of dialogue comes through the walls, then a chorus of laughter. Then more thunder. Most of the laugh tracks on television were recorded in the early 1950s. These days, most of the people you hear laughing are dead.”
Chuck Palahniuk

Melita Tessy
“Don’t you dare say these times are hollow
Just because there are storms raging by.
Just lay low on your pillow,
Close your eyes and say goodbye

To the world that you lived in today.
Let your dreams carry you away;
You lived a nightmare all through the day,
It is time to dream, so don’t delay.

You searched for a reason to live,
Yes darling, you searched everywhere.
You had to push, you had to strive,
It is time now to get some air.

You searched in all that is outside,
It is time now to look inside,
Cause that is where you’ll find
A reason worth keeping in your mind.

These dreams are not an escape, darling,
You need time to see past the lies that blind you.
It is time for you to start running
To those things that are true.

So, don’t you dare say these nights are hollow,
Just because there are storms raging by.
Just lay low on your pillow
And lose yourself in this lullaby.”
Melita Tessy, Battle of the Spheres: Crust, Mantle and Core

Erin Forbes
“Raindrops are nothing more than a lullaby for the restless soul.”
Erin Forbes, Fire & Ice: The Lost Dreamer

“Falling asleep while the rain is clashing down on the window is nature’s best lullaby.”

Liz Braswell
“Hey, Ariel," Flounder called shyly. "Before you go... could you... could you sing that lullaby? The one you used to sing to me after I lost my mother?"
Her eyes widened. "Flounder, you haven't asked me that in years... even before I lost my voice."
"And I won't ask again! It's just that" - he looked around. Jona politely pretended to watch something out in the sea, over by the far rocks- "we're alone here. No one from Atlantica is going to hear us. I don't know when you're going to have another chance."
And Ariel, who lost her voice for years and had mixed feelings about singing for others, sang more sweetly than she ever had before, or ever would again. And no one heard but one fish, one seagull, the sand and the water and the evening breeze coming over the waves, and the rising moon.”
Liz Braswell, Part of Your World

V.S. Carnes
“Therefore, she hummed the provincial lullaby she had learned from the officers’ children in the English Quarter of Jerusalem, and watched in fascination while the savage radical’s eyes misted over with tears. For an instant, the prison bars melted away, and she felt God’s presence—for the first time since their imprisonment. She was not a captive, and this man was not her captor. Indeed, they were both merely God’s children.”
V.S. Carnes

Ankush Agarwal
“A touch of ray on the stream
A twinkle on waves and the sunset gleam
I faintly remember seeing this picture
Or maybe it was just a dream.

Soothing solitude in the sky
Of tired footprints and a probing eye
I sparsely remember words of this song
Or maybe it was a lullaby”
Ankush Agarwal

Kate Forsyth
“Farfallina, bella e bianca, vola vola, mai si stanca, gira qua, e gira la- poi si resta sopra un fiore, e poi si resta sopra un fiore... Butterfly, beautiful and white, fly and fly, never get tired, turn here and turn there- she rests upon a flower... and she rests upon a flower.”
Kate Forsyth, Bitter Greens

“The night still bold
The cold singing by
The crickets on their turbo
Ushering in a celestial night in beautiful robe
For tonight he will wonder into a glorious quest of the night
As he lay down his head, will the Angels guard him
Good night and sweet dreams”
Perpetua Ukakogu

Lora Leigh
“Turning, she strode to the doorway, and for the second time, came to a stop. In front of the fire, on the large, soft rug before it, Jonas lay with Amber.

He'd changed clothes. Dressed in loose sweatpants, bare feet and a bare chest, he lay next to the baby as the fire flickered in front of them.

Amber was watching the flames with the drowsy wonder that only a baby could show. Her lashes lay low, sleep edging her expression as Jonas softly hummed a lullaby.”
Lora Leigh, Lion's Heat

Sarah K.L. Wilson
Towering, white in field of blue,
Soft and gentle as we flew,
Through the golden sunlight bright,
Dream of never-ending flight.

Sarah K.L. Wilson, Dusk Covenant

Victoria Moschou
“Let the starlight shine upon you, let it lead you to your peace...”
“Wil?” I murmured.
This was the lullaby Mother used to sing to us when we were little. The song Ethereal was supposed to be singing to her firstborn daughter, back at the dawn of time.
“It’s your fire that keeps you breathing and will never let you cease...”
Victoria Moschou, Guardian of the Auras

Eloisa James
“Hush-a-bye baby in the tree top, when the wind blows the cradle will rock, when the bough breaks the cradle will fall, and down will come baby, cradle and all.

Momma will catch you, give you a squeeze, send you back up to play in the trees, when twilight falls and birds seek their nests, come home to the one who loves you the best.”
Eloisa James, A Duke of Her Own

“May you dream of lovely things and to find them real.”
J J Heller

“A sweet surrender like a lullaby
came to me through your seafaring eyes.”
Azra Gregor, Your Mother Is A Storm

C.J. Redwine
“Hush now, baby, don't you cry.
Your little tears I'll always dry.
A branch of myrrh and Bolla root
To strengthen you in all you do
With silver and gold, and a strand of rose
And plenty of magic to keep them close.
Hush now, baby, I'm right here
To chase away your every fear
With a drop of mint and a sprig of yew
And three little precious drops of blue.
You'll grow straight and swift and true
And I will always be with you.”
C.J. Redwine, The Blood Spell

“Waking up to a blanket of snow is like a morning lullaby, a soft dreamlike state that is almost magical.”
Nancy Hatch Woodward
