Nature’s Goodnight


Music by Mildred J. Hill, Lyrics by Patty S. Hill, publ. 1896)

Clouds of gray are in the sky,
Flocks of birds are passing by,
Trees now dressed in faded brown,
Send their leaves all rustling down.
Little flowerets downward creep,
Nod their drowsy heads and sleep.
All the world must say “good night,”
Till spring comes back with sunshine bright.
