THE NIGHTINGALE SINGS
“Little nightingale,” the little maid called out in a loud tone, “our most gracious emperor wishes you to sing to him.”
From the story “The Nightingale.”
Andersen’s Fairy Tales.
Henry Altemus Company: Philadelphia. Ca 1920.
WIDE awake! wide awake!
Baby’s so wide awake,
What can I bring that will lull her to rest?
Poppies from Flowerland,
Raindrops from Showerland,
Silent slow shadows that creep up the west.
Laughings and cooings – oh, what roguish doings!
Why, this is sleepy-time, Baby, you know.
What can I bring to her,
What can I sing to her,
So that my baby to Dreamland may go?
Lullaby, lullaby, sing a song dull, oh, bye,
Bye, little Baby, now shut up your eyes!
Moon shadowed now’s the land,
Dreams come from Drowsyland,
Droop, dreamy eyelids, and lie sleepy wise.
Mary Had a Little Lamb
Henry Altemus Company: Philadelphia. 1906.
