Coventry Carol

Lully, lullay, Thou little tiny Child,
By, by, lully, lullay.

O sisters too, how may we do,
For to preserve this day
This poor Youngling for Whom we sing
By, by, lully, lullay?

Herod the king, in his raging,
Charged he hath this day
His men of might, in his own sight,
All young children to slay.

That woe is me, poor Child for Thee!
And ever morn and day
For Thy parting neither say nor sing,
By, by, lully, lullay.

Lully, lullay, Thou little tiny Child,
By, by, lully, lullay.

  • not quite normal NaNoWriMo

    So I have concluded my NaNoWri adventure. Both stories are complete for a total of 35,154 words. One small whoot.

  • NaNoWriMo news

    The first novella's first draft is done. At 21,400 words. Hmm. I see a small problem if the second one turns out the same, even not taking the time…

  • NaNoWriMo

    Going sluggishly. Did write something every day, so there is hope in sight.
