The Garten Mother's Lullaby


Sora
Lyrics by Seosamh Mac Cathmhaoil. Arranged by Geoffrey Pratley

Lyrics

Sleep o Babe for the red bee hums
The silent twilight`s fall
Eeval* from the grey rock comes
To wrap the world in thrall
A lyan van O, my child, my joy
My love and heart`s desire, 
The crickets sing you lullaby
Beside the dying fire

Dark is drawn and the green man`s thorn
Is wreathed in rings of fog
Sheevra sails his boat `til morn
Upon the starry bog
A lyan van O, the paly moon
Hath brimmed her cusp in dew
And weeps to hear the sad sleep song
I sing my love to you

Sleep o Babe for the red bee hums
The silent twilight`s fall
Eeval from the grey rock comes
To wrap the world in thrall
A lyan van O, my child, my joy
My love and heart`s desire
The crickets sing you lullaby
Beside the dying fire
