Wynken, Blynken and Nod

Our upcoming theme is "Stars" which immediately brought me to this desktop
of "Wynken, Blynken and Nod" which was one of my favorite childhood rhymes.
I had memorized it years ago but have forgotten much of it since then.
The poem was written by Eugene Field and published in 1889;
if you've never read it you can find it here
The illustration is by Minnie Dibdin Spooner from the book
The Golden Staircase: Poems and Verses for Children and is in the public domain.
This is a large desktop and can be saved to your computer by clicking on the image.
If you need a 1024x768 size you can find that here
I hope you enjoy "Wynken, Blynken and Nod" as much as I.
