The Hammock


There's babe in it, softly cooing
While the mom keeps it slowly swinging
"Sleep now, my darling
For the sun is rising,
And the earth is drying
This day is long and so with working
Pile of clothes need washing,
Our field needs ploughing"
And she's singing and humming
Til the babe is soundly sleeping
Then, she tied a rope on one sling
So she could continue pulling
