EVENING

From the April 1916 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Sleep, little bird, 'neath thy mother's wing; The sun sinks low in the purpling sky, While gently the night-winds thy cradle swing And croon thee a tender lullaby. Sleep, little one, on thy mother's breast; Now deeper and deeper the shadows fall As twilight covers the dreaming west, And the evening's peace broods over all.
