n. Animal lullabies.

“The birds sing eflisin to their young and even to others of their kind, / but their songs are different songs than ours, formed in a softer air, / steep baskets woven with sonic care and rocked in softer bowers, / and bears and wolverines and foxes mold the air around them / with still other kinds of fur-dark blankets that surround them, / and crickets fill the temperatures of air with their own choices, / strike sharply splintered sounds within their very eflisin settled voices.” Animal Lullabies, an Incomplete Anthology. Fallings Reacher. 1866.
