The Quilt Willow Tree ® Figurine by Susan Lordi.
Sleep my child and peace... peace... Covered in love and keep... keep...
I was thinking about metaphors of quilts. A lot about protection. A quilt makes us feel safe and warm. The rows of even stitching showing the passing of time, a meditative rhythm like quieting and rocking a child. It takes time and patience. I wanted the quilt and the rocking to be one. The sentiment reveals this rhythm also lullabies dont have to make literal sense ... but the cadence of the words is lyrical and soothing. The warmth and coziness of a sleeping child the tender connection these quiet memories exist in anyone who has ever rocked a child in their arms.
