CRADLE SONG

Thy heart and mine are one, my dear,
 At dawn and set of sun;
When skies are bright, when days are drear,
 Thy heart and mine are one!


About us move the hapless folk
 Whom paltry things estrange;
The friends that feel their bond a yoke,
 The loves that lightly change;


But thou and I, my bonny child,
 Their dangers blithely shun,
Nor can by folly be beguiled,—
 For thou and I are one!
