Hush, hush my son
Don't rattle the bars
Lay, lay down your head
On the pillow and sleep

Hush, hush my love
Don't, don't fight the sleep
Soon, soon you will rise
And play once more with me

Hush, hush my father
Don't rattle the bars
Lay, lay down your head
On the pillow and slip away

Hush, hush my love
Don't, don't fight the dying
Soon, soon we will rise
And we, we'll be together

And now more gentle, into that good night,
for rage is wrought and won against the dying of the light.
The blaze of midday, shadowed, bows to splendour's king arising
from his chamber; winter shines,
his splendid bride, and blankets life.

He called her "Follow"
into rest, and slept
the seventh day. Let her again
his picture be, whose body in her image
forged her death into his life.
Come morning, "Let there be", in flesh;
he named that darkness ever his Good Night.
