The night she stood in front of me
cloaked in her dark shawl.
Shimmered she did though shyly,
but looked very confident and tall.
"Come child don't hurt me so.
Don't look me with those eyes."
"That shine you reserve for day
Give me your sleepy smile."
I did as she bid
or I think at least I tried.
For she took me in her arms
And sung me her lullabies.
