888888               777777

Through the windless wells of wonder

666666              000000

By the throbbing    light machine

2nd verse:

People hurry by so quickly 
Don't they hear the melodies 
In the chiming and the clicking 
And the laughing harmonies 

Songs to aging children come 
Aging children, I am one 
  

3rd verse:

Some come dark and strange like dying 
Crows and ravens whistling 
Lines of weeping, strings of crying 
So much said in listening 

Songs to aging children come 
Aging children, I am one 
  

4th verse:

Does the moon play only silver 
When it strums the galaxy 
Dying roses will they will their 
Perfumed rhapsodies to me 

Songs to aging children come 
This is one
