A LULLABY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Sich a li'l feller, en he settin' up so wise!
Last Line: By-bye, honey, twell de mawnin'.


Sich a li'l feller, en he settin' up so wise!
Say he like his daddy, but he got his mammy's eyes;
Angel tuck en drap him fum a winder in de skies--
By-bye, honey, twell de mawnin'.

Sich a li'l feller, in de cunnin'es' er cloze!
Say he love his daddy, but his mammy's what he knows!
Foun' him in de springtime, en dey tuck him fer a rose--
By-bye, honey, twell de mawnin'.

Sich a li'l feller, en he talkin' like a man!
By-bye, by-bye, kiss yo' li'l han';
Lots er li'l chillun in de sleepy lan'--
By-bye, honey, twell de mawnin'.
