Lullaby and Sweet Goodbye

Lullaby an’ sweet goodbye;
No more milk  for baby’s cry;
Mother is  sleeping in  keeping
Of tight bed of night without peeping,
No weeping now from gentle, rouge lips,
Still hips showed their worth in painful birth.
Hearth is empty and father, brother are all gone.
Brawn couldn’t save, what dawn will now take.
No cake to bake for birth of new babe,
And no one can even fake one smile,
But mile will be walked without
Guile of sorrow on the morrow;
No more milk for baby’s cry;
Tis lullaby, sweet goodbye.
