The week is nearly over and

the nights are growing long,

the verses turn melodious but

the chorus names the song.


The words sing out a message

in the lines where they belong,

the clock in the ticking corner

is getting ready to join the song.


A lullaby to say goodnight

with sweet relaxing rhythm,

the moon is creeping overhead

beneath silent stars of heaven.
