Song Lyrics: Lambkins

I didn't write this song, though I did set it to a melody and arrange it.  

The lyrics are public domain and they are by Christina G Rossetti

What can lambkins do

        All the keen night through?

    Nestle by their woolly mother

        The careful ewe.

What can nestlings do

        In the nightly dew?

    Sleep beneath their mother's wing

        Till day breaks anew.

If in a field or tree

        There might only be

    Such a warm soft sleeping-place

        Found for me!

Christina Georgina Rossetti (5 December 1830 – 29 December 1894)
