"Pa's fiddle answered her with little notes running like water in the sunshine and widening into a pool. The moon was rising. The creamy light crept up the sky and the stars melted in it. Cool and silvery, the moonlight lay over the dark land, and softly Pa sang with the fiddle:
'When the stars are brightly beaming
And the sighing winds are still,
When the twilight shadows hover o'er the lea,
There's a tiny candle gleaming
From the cottage 'neath the hill
And I know that little beacon shines for me.'"

By the Shores of Silver Lake by Laura Ingalls Wilder
