Lullaby of Eventide Empty Lullaby of Eventide

..............Lullaby of Eventide 22513910.

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
