First Line: Ere the moon begins to rise
Last Line: Sleep, sleep, thou.
Subject(s): Mothers

Ere the moon begins to rise
Or a star to shine,
All the bluebells close their eyes--
So close thine,
Thine, dear, thine!

Birds are sleeping in the nest
On the swaying bough,
Thus, against the mother-breast--
So sleep thou,
Sleep, sleep, thou.
