Aunt Este's Stories For Children
My dear little ones:
And how do you like the Mother Goose tales? I hope you
like them very much. Don't you think Mother Goose surely must
have been a queer old soul to write such funny tales?
And now hark to the story of HUSH A-BYE BABY.
Have you little girls ever sang this song to your dollies?
But I know you have—Just listen.
Xow can't you Just see Dolly falling to sleep to those words?
Well, there was once a time when Hush a-bye Baby Just
loved her tree-top home. She was a good little baby—and very
seldom cried. But why should she have cried? For wasn't her bed
room the beautiful green tree with its brown bark walls, and its
little windows all different shapes, formed by the space between
the leaves? And didn't she always have plenty of fresh air?
And didn't she hear the sweetest lullabies sung to her from the
mouths of many, many birds? There was robin who used to come
along and sing his little song for her; for he pitied this Hush a
bye Baby all alone up there on the tree top. There was tiny
wren who stopped to twitter to her as she passed by, Just to see
her smile. So you see she had plenty of music for such a little tot.
So for a long time she was satisfied up there In the tree tops,
this Hush a-bye Baby. But one day she got to thinking, and
what do you suppose she thought about? Well, It Just seemed
to strike her all at once that she was out of place. That she did
not belong up there. The little birds had their nests and their
mothers. The,little leaves belonged to old Mother Tree. The
airy, fairy breezes were the children of old Motiier Wind. But
to whom did she belong? Well, it Just seemed to no one. And
the more she thought, the more dissatisfied she became, and the
more she felt that she did not belong in that cradle up in the
tree top.

Suddenly she began to make a noise. It was a queer little
"la-la" noise. Robin did not like it and neither did his birdies.
Tiny wren was quite provoked because. It wakened up her little
ones. The nice leaves shook with displeasure when they heard
that funny "la-la."
"What sort of a noise is that?".pne and all asked. "We are
not used to such queer sounds. It Isn't a happy sound such as we
want up here In the tree top. It is a miserable one."
' But no matter how often they asked they could get no ans
wer from Hush a-bye Baby but "la-la," which each time became
more miserable and louder.
Well, the commotion grew and grew up there on that tree
top. Finally the wind blew, "00-00-oo." said he, and the tree top
shook, and the leaves shook, and that little baby's cradle there
in the fork of the tree top shook, and shook and shook—until
Down tumbled Hush a-bye.
Baby and all!"
And what is the end of the hush a-bye story, dear little ones?
Well, I shall tell you. That dear little baby up there In the
tree top fell right Into a dear little wooden cradle In somebody's
home, and then she was satisfied, and fell to sleep—for she knew
she had found her home. She belonged with people on level
ground and not up a tree top with birds. And that is why she
had cried the "la-la" cry. But soon as she was dropped to earth
into the dear little wooden cradle, some one took and dressed
her In pretty white clothes, and put little warm socks on her
feet and gave her a bath In nice warm water, and tucked her up
in warm blankets—and best of all gave her a mother to fondle'
her and'love her and kiss her.
And now dear little ones if you happen to have a hush a-bye
baby in your house and you ever hear her cry "la-la" you may
Just know that she is thinking of the times she lived on a tree
top. and perhaps imagines she Is still there—for as soon as mother
picks her up and holds her tight, she cuddles right down and
stops, does she not? —Which shows she Is glad the wind blew, and
she fell down, down, down to mother and sisters and brothers.
And if you have not a little hush a-bye baby, I surely hope
the wind will soon blow again—and right down Into your homes
and hearts there will tumble "The Hush a-bye Baby and all."
