Hush now children,

Tonight is not the night,

For sounds of shrieks and wails,

For noisy toys for noisy boys for

Silent slumber awaits us.

As the rain

Pitter-patters patterns

Pull close the curtains,

Stoke the fires,

Feed your bellies full

Of chicken stew dashed with black relish,

A scent warms your soul,

A stock fills your heart,

Remember tonight.

Lock away the world,

Take a candle to your bed

Watch shadows dance upon the walls,

The night is almost upon us,

Hush now children.
