LULLABY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Day is ending; night is falling
Last Line: Go to sleep! Go to sleep!


Day is ending; night is falling;
From the Land of Drowsihead,
Don't you hear the Sand-Man calling,
"Children all should be abed"?
Go to sleep! Go to sleep!

Not for all his golden treasure
Will he sell the wicked King
Sleepy-sand the smallest measure,
Nor for any precious thing.
Go to sleep! Go to sleep!

Best he loves the poor man's dwelling,
Tire and ache the surest plea
For the gift beyond all telling
Sweet to men on land and sea.
Go to sleep! Go to sleep!

Bless him for his magic fetter!
Now, my sweet, he comes to you.
Eyes wide open? All the better!
He will know just what to do.
Go to sleep! Go to sleep!
