The Ferry Of Shadowtown

SWAY to and fro in the twilight gray;
      This is the ferry for Shadowtown;
It always sails at the end of the  Lillian D. Riceday,
      Just as the darkness closes down.
Rest, little head, on my shoulder so
      A sleepy kiss is the only fare;
Drifting away from the world we go,
      Baby and I in the rocking char.
See, where the fire logs glow and spark,
      Glitter the lights of the shadowland;
The raining drops on the window -- hark! --
      Are ripples lapping upon its strand.
There, where the mirror is glancing dim,
      A lake lies shimmering, cool and still;
Blossoms are waving above its brim,
      Those over there on the window sill.
Rock slow, more slow, in the dusky light,
      Silently lower the anchor down,
Dear little passenger, say "Good night!"
      We`ve reached the harbor for Shadowtown!

- Lillian D. Rice
