TWILIGHT TIME, by            
First Line: When the sun has gone behind the hill
Last Line: When we can all be together!
Subject(s): Evening; Family Life; Sunset; Twilight; Relatives

When the sun has gone behind the hill,
When the dark comes creeping
And the earth is very still;
Then I call my little children
To come home to me --
Back to their fireside again.

The day is made for playing and fun
Under the friendly sky;
But at dusk, when day is done,
I call them home to me.
I close the door on all the world
And gather them round my knee.

We talk of birds and men and flowers,
Of what we've seen and heard;
How we've spent the daytime hours,
How much we love each other!
How glad we are for the twilight time
When we can all be together!
