I like that you took a traditional lullaby like, 'Mockingbird,' and made it our own.
Oh Christ...the third stanza is absolutely heart-breaking and emotionaly devastating. The tone of the line, "breathe no more," suggests that the mother accidentally suffocated her child. I love that the mother put her baby back in the cradle, as if by doing so, she could pretend that the baby was still alive, instead of "still and neat."
"Hush, dying embers." I literally cried. What else could I do? The mother set her children on fire? That's just...wow...I don't even know what to say. Alice, I absolutely loved this piece-it's morbid, chilling, haunting, and incredible. Excellent work. :)
