Title: Blossom for Bedtime  
Twenty Two of Thirty  
Unique Words: Eighty-Three  

#NaPoWriMo19  

Ten cherry blossoms hanging in a line,  
the wind ripped through and now there are nine.  
 
Nine cherry blossoms on the tree as weight,  
a tit bounced a branch and now there are eight.  
 
Eight cherry blossoms are eye-catching in Devon,  
a child ran fast and now there are seven.  
 
Seven cherry blossoms dangling from sticks  
the rain beat down and now there are six.  
 
Six cherry blossoms, fresh and alive,  
a squirrel lept over and now there are five.  
 
Five cherry blossoms, high above the meadow floor,  
dog jumped for a ball and now there are four.  
 
Four cherry blossoms clinging to the tree, the gardener brushed by and now there are three.  
 
Three cherry blossoms, quite pink against the blue,  
picked some for a vase and now there are two.  
 
Two cherry blossoms cling together in the Sun,  
a pigeon planned a nest and now there is one.  
 
One cherry blossom with it's work quite done,  
it flutters to the floor and now there are none.

Author's Note
First night my daughter (2) has fallen asleep without breast milk, this rhyme slowly made up seemed to help.
