Brings one to tears. Such effortless beauty. Listen for the enchanting alto in this version. :)

Mariä Wiegenlied

Maria sitzt im Rosenhag
Und wiegt ihr Jesuskind,
Durch die Blätter leise
Weht der warme Sommerwind.
Zu ihren Füßen singt
Ein buntes Vögelein:
Schlaf, Kindlein, süße,
Schlaf nun ein!
Hold ist dein Lächeln,
Holder deines Schlummers Lust,
Leg dein müdes Köpfchen
Fest an deiner Mutter Brust!
Schlaf, Kindlein, süße,
Schlaf nun ein!
Mary’s Lullaby

English Translation © Richard Stokes
Mary sits by the rose bower
And rocks her little Jesus,
Softly through the leaves
The warm wind of summer blows.
A brightly coloured bird
Sings at her feet:
Go to sleep, sweet child,
It’s time to go to sleep!
Your smile is lovely,
Your happy sleep lovelier still,
Lay your tired little head
Against your mother’s breast!
Go to sleep, sweet child,
It’s time to go to sleep!
Translations by Richard Stokes, author of The Book of Lieder (Faber, 2005)

Did you want to know the state of things? Here it is. Get out there and demand that we respect female rights, boundaries, and safety in society.

It is the holiday season again folks.  One of the best ways to get into the feeling of the season is to share with others.  It’s also a very nice end around the whole capitalism thing, if that’s your bag.

 

To make it extra easy, while in Canada, I would suggest going to the Canada Helps Website.  Straightforward, secure, and reliable.

 

It is my holiday tradition to donate Turkey’s in the name of my family and friends.  Also a great time of year to donate to the Vancouver Women’s Rape Relief Shelter, they are on the front lines of keeping women (adult human females) safe in our society and deserve our support.

 

 

 

 

Choice is so important to consumers these days. :)
