Dusk and a Star

Sleep, oh, my little one,

Sleep while a dream is spun--

Dusk and a star.

Hush! Hear the veery cry

Fluting a lullaby

Closing your drowsy eye--

Dusk and a star.

Saffron, the moon from some

Port where the angels hum--

Bells from afar ...

Gently the shadows come--

Dusk and a star!
