Silent Sunlight

    Silent sunlight, welcome in
    There is work I must now begin
    All my dreams have blown away
    And the children wait to play
    They’ll soon remember things to do
    When the heart is young
    And the night is done
    And the sky is blue

    Morning songbird, sing away
    Lend a tune to another day
    Bring your wings and choose a roof
    Sing a song of love and truth
    We’ll soon remember if you do
    When all things were tall
    And our friends were small
    And the world was new

    Sleepy horses, heave away
    Put your backs to the golden hay
    Don’t ever look behind at the work you’ve done
    For your work has just begun
    There’ll be the evening in the end
    But till that time arrives
    You can rest your eyes –
    And begin again
