Lady of the Evening
After the gray of a long dreary day comes the evening Peaceful and calm as a sheltering palm is the evening Daytime has gone to rest, there in the golden west Soon little stars will appear in the sky Seeming to say, "We are here, hush-a-bye" Evening, lady of the evening I can hear you calling me Calling, while the shades are falling Falling over land and sea You can make the cares and troubles That followed me through the day Fold their tents just like the Arabs And silently steal away Evening, lady of the evening I hear you calling me After the sun when its day's work is done comes the evening Then with the night comes the angels who light up the evening There in the sky they stand, each with a torch in hand Then one by one, little stars in the sky Look down and say, "We are here, hush-a-bye"
