Cradle song
Language: English 
Now the birds are folding
All their tiny wings
In the treetop cradles,
While a small wind sings.

Mother, too , is crooning
Bedtime lullabies
To her little loved one,
Wearing sleepy eyes,

And with darkness coming
At the night's command,
Baby takes the dreamboat
Bound for Slumber Land.
