The evening is cool, the moonlight is bright.
The owls are calling all through the night.
While children are sleeping, each snug in her bed,
here come the stars, marching ahead.
Some creatures are moving all through the night,
while others are sleeping, waiting for light.
Down goes the moon, up comes the sun.
Here come the children, ready to run.
