IOI (7/4/1934 / Hebburn.Co Durham U.K)

Nightwatch For My Lady Irene

When silence fills the bowl of night.
My lady slumbers peacefully,
to lie beside her is my right.
A source to me of sheer delight.

My lady slumbers peacefully.
She is aware that I am near
safeguarding her security.
She knows she can rely on me

To lie beside her is my right
a privilege I had to earn.
I am rewarded by the sight
this night and every other night.

A source to me of sheer delight.
My lady dreams her dreams in peace
When silence fills the bowl of night
I watch and ward her by moonlight.
