Lullaby for Lovely Baby

(dedicated to Ms. Ruth Palmer, a talented violinist)

con amore

very gently
con grazia

flowing hug
slowly sway

caring touch
softly voice

sleep my baby
sleep into deep
sleep peacefully

sleep happily
sleep sweetheart
sleep, no more weep

wish you well
wish you luck
wish always to you

wish you save
wish you glad
wish from us to you

berceuse Debussy
berceuse Chopin
only to you

let’s dream nicely
let’s dream gorgeously
let’s dream of playground

let bubbles dance
let balloons fly
let stars sing



do we still need in harsh time
do we still seek in hard world
this lullaby too, my dear friends?

(inspired by Berthe Morisot's The Cradle)
