Wynken, Blynken, and Nod

Before bed last night I told the girls my favorite poem:
Wynken, Blynken, and Nod 
by Eugene Field

My favorite part comes at the end:

"Wynken and 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 in the misty sea
   Where the old shoe rocked the fishermen three:—
            And Nod."
