**Full view recommended** This picture was partly inspired by Wynken, Blynken, and Nod, which is a childrens poem/lullaby, written by Eugene Field (the original title was Dutch Lullaby). I have always enjoyed this poem/lullaby and have sang it once. You might recognize it from the 1993 movie, Dennis the Menace (US version) or Dennis (UK version).
"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 / Never afeard are we"; / So cried the stars to the fishermen three: Wynken, Blynken, and Nod.
All night long their nets they threw / To the stars in the twinkling foam / Then down from the skies came the wooden shoe, / Bringing the fishermen home; / 'T was all so pretty a sail it seemed / As if it could not be, / And some folks thought 't was a dream they 'd dreamed / Of sailing that beautiful sea / But I shall name you the fishermen three: Wynken, Blynken, and Nod.
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: Wynken, Blynken, and Nod."
