Gartan mother's lullaby
Margie Butler

Sleepbabefor the red-bee hums
The silent twilight's fall:
Aibheall fromt he Grey Rock comes
To wrap the world in thrall.
leanbhan omy childmy joy,
My love and heart's-desire,
The crickets sing you lullaby
Beside the dying fire.

Dusk is drawnand the Green Man's Thorn
Is wreathed in rings of fog:
Siabhra sails his boat till morn
Upon the Starry Bog.
leanbhan o, the pale half moon
Hath brimmed her cusp in dew,
And weeps to hear the sad sleep-tune
singloveto you.
