Song, by two voices

First Voice.
Who is the baby, that doth lie
Beneath the silken canopy
Of thy blue eye?

Second.
It is young Sorrow, laid asleep
In the crystal-deep.

Both.
Let us sing his lullaby,
Heigho! a sob and a sigh.

First Voice.
What sound is that, so soft, so clear,
Harmonious as a bubbled tear
Bursting, we hear?

Second.
It is young Sorrow, slumber breaking,
Suddenly awaking.

Both.
Let us sing his lullaby,
Heigho! a sob and a sigh.

[Kelsall, 1851]
