about

Lucy tries to convince Vivian that only trouble will be found when the mound is disturbed. Vivian is unmoved, but her sleep is troubled.

Listen! The wind she moans,
She sighs, she murmurs, she groans;

Don't make them cry and weep,
Let them sleep!

You would never dig up your own, so leave them alone!
You would never dig up your own, so leave them alone!

Repeat
