what course to pursue. This is a fav

A France-Land Lullaby.
Sleep, thou little child of sorrows,
War's harsh din fright not thine ear;
Sleep, and dream of happier morrows,
Rest thine heart and feel no fear.
Bends thy mother's angel 'bove thee,
Leans thy father's spirit near;
France, thy Mother-Land, will love
She'll defend thee, baby dear.
Sorrow's child, did f oemen wrest thee
From the breast, serene and sweet,
Where a mother's love would nest
O'er a heart which for thee beat?
Sleep, thy Mother France will hold
Sleep, for other loving arms
Shall with tenderness enfold thee;
Shield thee safe from war's alarms.
Now the sun sinks to its setting;
Shadows slant across the sky.
Dream, sweet child, in sleep forget
War's grim specter. Lullaby!
Rises o'er thy birth-land stricken
Hope's clear, shining star of light.
Sleep, no shadows 'round thee
Wake to day-dawn, blest and bright.
