early one morning

Brief taste of Buffy blogging: This song does haunt me. I like English traditional folk music--a lingering predilection from all those years reading olde school literature and almost getting a minor in Medieval studies. The lyrics are so devastating. More to the point, what a bizarre song for a mother to sing her son to put him to sleep. It's a pretty melody, but the lyrics are so not comforting. No wonder William grew up to be a vampire with trust and intimacy issues.
