In the evening
the stars come out to fill the skies.
In the evening
loving hearts will keep believing;
mothers singing their lullabies;
children held close in comfort sigh,
in the evening.

  1. nice…nice gentle rondelet to end the evening on walt…because it is in the evening and i hear the lullaby…ha…no stars tonight though after the storm…still too many clouds to see them…

    This is the most natural one I have read: the form sits so comfortably on the lines and the refrain is not an appendage but a coherent component.
