I found this at Out Of The Closet and now have it hanging by my bedside. I read it for my cat and dog.
PRAYER FOR A LITTLE CHILD
God keep my Jewel this day from danger;
From tinker and pooka and black hearted stranger.
From harm of the water and hurt of the fire,
From the horns of the cows going home from the byre.
From teasing the ass when he’s tied to the manger,
From stones that would bruise and from thorns of the briar.
From evil red berries that waken desire,
From hunting the gander and vexing the goat.
From the depths o’ sea water by Danny’s old boat,
From cut and from tumble, from sickness and weeping;
May God have my Jewel this day in his keeping.
