Slip Under

Furmanski’s correct,
And not only for
Mothers. Fathers, too,

And even children
Know, although they can’t
Articulate it

As well as she did,
Every lullaby
Has the elegy

Blowing through it. Each
Generation hears
Bedtime whispering,

This sweetness could fail,
Mit Näglein besteckt,
Schlupf unter die Deck.
