Excerpt: ... LULLABY. The drowsy night is coming, The mist is on the heath; Above the stars are shining, The glow-worms underneath. The flowers for sleep are sighing, The bird is in its nest, The daylight is all hidden With sunshine in the west. The ladybird at sunset Went swiftly to her home; The bats their wings are spreading, And quite prepared to roam. And, hark! the cricket singing His love-song to the skies, Where all the stars are waiting To see you close your eyes. L They wish you all sweet slumber, They wish you all good night; They'll tell the sun to rouse you When once again 'tis light. And while you sleep, the roses May think your cheeks so fair That, in the early morning, You'll find them resting there. THE END. Printed by R. & R. Clark, Edinburgh. NEW BOOKS FOB CHILDBEH". MR.
