Waly, Waly, but I.ove be
Who Ne'er his Bread in Sor-
By the fireside there are old men seated,
By the fireside there are youthful dreamers,
By the fireside tragedies are acted
In whose scenes appear two actors only,
Wife and husband,
By the fireside there are peace and comfort,
LIKE A LA VEROCK IN THE LIFT
It's we two, it's we two, it's we two for aye,
What's the world, my lass, my love! — what can it do?
Like a laverock in the lift, sing, O bonny bride!
When the darker days come, and no sun will shine,
Only a little brain,
Empty of thought;
Troubled with nought.
Only a tender flower
Sent us to rear;
While we are here;
Never at rest;
God knoweth best.
What is the little one thinking about?
Very wonderful things, no doubt;
Yet he laughs and cries, and eats and drinks,
And chuckles, and crows, and nods, and winks,
As if his head were as full of kinks
And curious riddles as any sphinx!
Warped by colic, and wet by tears,
He need not laugh, for he 'll find it so.
Who can tell what a baby thinks?
By which the manikin feels his way
Into the light of day?
What does he think of his mother's eyes?
