Hi Everyone!! This article will share Lullaby Questions & Answers.
This poem is written by Alan Norman Bold. A lullaby is a song that is gentle and restful and is usually sung to help children sleep. In my previous posts, I have shared the questions & answers of The River, The Caucus Race and The Great Mouse Plot so, you can check these posts as well.
Lullaby Questions & Answers
- Snug – warm and safe
- Pleasant – nice, enjoyable
- Drifting – moving slowly in no particular direction
Question 1: Read these lines and answer the questions that follow:
(a) The first stanza describes three things that we usually do when we go to bed. What are they?
Answer: The three things that we usually do when we go to bed are:
- Close our eyes
- Cuddle ourselves
- Think about the pleasant things that we love.
(b) What is sleep compared to? Why do you think the poet uses this comparison?
Answer: Sleep is compared to an island. The poet uses this comparison because like an island which is surrounded by the sea, undisturbed by anything around, sleep also takes us to a place where we can rest and enjoy and don’t get disturbed.
Also, when we are tired of travelling in vast sea, we see an island as a place to rest. In the same way, after a long tiring day, we take rest while sleeping.

Answer: The poet says that dreams are like journeys because they take us to different places and we can see many new things as we see on a journey.
Question 3: What does sleep gift us with?
Answer: The gift that sleep gives us is that it relaxes us and gives us strength for the next day.

Answer: Yes, I like this lullaby because it makes the reader think about rest, warm blankets and pleasant dreams. It takes us to the new world of calmness and peace.

Answer: Love-above, warm-harm and along-strong.
