Stories of the sea II – a lullaby

combine dark sea4REDUX

This shall be thy lullaby,
Rocking on the stormy sea;
Though it roar in thunder wild,
Sleep, stilly sleep, my dark haired child.

When our shuddering boat was crossing
Eldern’s lake so rudely tossing,
Then ’twas first my nursling smiled;
Sleep, softly sleep, my fairbrowed child.

Waves above thy cradle break,
Foamy tears are on thy cheek,
Yet the ocean’s self grows mild
When it bears my slumbering child.
When it bears my slumbering child.

(Emily Brontë, Song to A.A.)
