Wynken, Blynken and Nod one night sailed off in a wooden shoe ? sailed 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 have come to fish for the herring-fish that live in this beautiful sea; nets of silver and gold have we,? said Wynken, Blynken 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. The little stars were the herring-fish that lived in that beautiful sea ??Now cast your nets wherever you wish ? but never afeared are we.? So cried the stars to the fisherman three: Wynken, Blynken and Nod...
...Wynken, Blynken 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 shut your eyes while mother sings of wonderful sights that be, and you shall see the beautiful things as you rock on the misty sea, where the old shoe rocked the fisherman three:Wynken, Blynken and Nod.
