Cradle-Song At Twilight

Rating: 3.3
The child not yet is lulled to rest.
Too young a nurse, the slender Night
So laxly holds him to her breast
That throbs with flight.

He plays with her, and will not sleep.
For other playfellows she sighs;
An unmaternal fondness keep
Her alien eyes.

Too young a nurse but with the responsibility of a mother. Lovely.
