1.
The Dreamer.

Enveloped in his cotton wraps
He rests his weary pate.
The day is used, the night is young,
Time, now, to meditate.

High up on the mountain top.

You'll reflect on what you learned from them
Further on along the line.
...

You left me with a broken heart,
I wouldn't let the teardrops flow.
Although, inside, I fell apart,
I couldn't let it show.
...

Baban Bach (Little Baby)

We long to meet you, little pal.
The month of June is nigh.
A precious bundle born of love.
That, no-one can deny.
