The stars nre shlnlng for tho morn;
Sleep, littlo rosobud, sleep.
Tho nlght anothcr morn has born;
Sleep, littlo rosebud, sleep.
Tho stars glcam on nnofhcr grave,
The dows anothcr tombstono lave.
Whero larkspur bloomed but yestarday
Tho nlght hangs prcsslng on tho morn;
Sleep, littlo rosebud, sleep.
The winds have sobbcd the stara to rest;
Sleep, littlo rosebud, sleep.
The whlppoorwill slccps wlthin Us nest;
Sleep, littlo rosebud, sleep.
Two littlo teeth begln to show.
Two littlo eyes glve back tho glow
That beamed on mo ono year ago.
Baby's sobs would break her rest;
Sleep, littlo rosobud, sleep.
