English.png English text

Ev'ning breese,
come rock the trees,
The birds to slumber swinging;

Lull the flow'rs,
in shady bow'rs,
Their dreamland tryst to keep.

All the day,
the garden gay
With laughing life was ringing;

Now the sun,
his journey done,
Is veiled in shadows deep.

He lingers in the west,
A last smile to bestow,
Before he sinks to rest
'Neath the cloud-curtains low,
Sinking low.
