Goodnight by W. T. Peters


by W. T. Peters

Good-night, happy stars,

With your yellow eyes;

Good-night, lady moon,

In the evening skies;

Good-night, dusky world

And the boundless deep;

I am tired out;

It is time to sleep—

Time, time to sleep.

Good-night! Good-night!

Good-night, weary child;

It has been decreed

That some mysteries

Only a child can read;

But the sweet child-heart

May you always keep,

And the stars will be yours,

And the boundless deep—

The boundless, boundless deep.

Good-night! Good-night!
