Sing Me an Old-Age Lullaby
Planxty Maggie Browne.
|Sing me an old-age lullaby that
Each age-old plaint of a bewildered heart.
Vision me a melody that lingers
Easy in the hallways east of dreams,
Naked once again to passion singers
Touch with the precision of their art,
Yearning neither joy nor pain removes.
