Sleep then my princess





I had a memory come to me recently, one I hadnt thought about for many years. I was singing to my 3 year old and suddenly rememberd a song my Mum used to sing to me when I couldnt sleep. She would stroke my forehead and sing these words

Sleep then, my Princess, oh, sleep!
Slowly the gray shadows creep;
Forest and meadow are still;
Peace falls on valley and hill;
Luna appears in the sky,
Holding her lantern on high;
Stars now their night watches keep,
Sleep then, my Princess, oh sleep!
Goodnight!____Goodnight!
Sleep then, my Princess, oh, sleep!
Calm flow the waters so deep;
Soon shall thy weary lids close;
Sink to a gentle repose;
Mother shall leave her Princess;
Heaven thy slumber shall bless;
Angels their watch o'er thee keep,
Sleep then, my Princess, oh sleep!
Goodnight!____Goodnight!



Now I couldnt remember every word at the time, but the trusty internet soon found them courtesy of my search of "sleep now my princess" I then discovered it was a well known Mozart piece called The cradle song or Wiegenlied.
I love the words above, and they used to conjure up magical visions in my head as I tried to sleep.
So I went looking for the song and was really happy to find a gorgeous version by Hayley Westernra, who in my opinion, has the most pure beautiful voice! She does a brilliant version of "Wuthering Heights" the number 1 song in my Top 100 list of best ever songs :)
ahhh Mum, thanks for giving me a lovely memory!

Did your Mother sing to you at bedtime? or any other time?
