Personal Space 3

This is a Berceuse-like piece which is a bit Britten-esque. It contains regulating features including the regular bass-pattern, but also chromatic features in the melody {and a stable high-variety harmony}. It lulls and soothes, takes us into a comfort-zone, provides a 'safe space' within which to dwell. But does it give us insight into our condition? Is it more insular than transparent, more private than public?
