Lullaby of Eventide

Post by BC Williams on Sun 06 Feb 2011, 5:21 pm


In the wee hours of nighttime, inspired by thoughts of my little towheaded
mother duck and all she'd been through for love, I composed this piece:

.............Lullaby of Eventide

When I'm alone I walk in fields at eventide,
as dimness looms in depth of swelling blur.
Dream-like twilight drifts in pandemic veil,
and at once I witness nature's stir.

With stilling voice, her lovely calls are heeded,
and I watch as innocents join her fold.
Child-like playtime has come to an end
and now, take rest in slumber's hold.

In deepest night I give my thoughts to quietude
and I dream in a sleeper's breathy swing.
I see sweet fledgling's stir in her fold,
and hear the lullaby she sings:

Now it is time to sleep, my love -
nighttime will soon see its close.
Rest little wild babe in mother's care,
sweet rest of nighttime's repose.

........... 2005 BC Williams
