Farewell, Leonie.

My farewell song at the Hermitage, is for Leonie.
A Lullaby we all remember from our childhoods I am sure.

Lullaby and good night,
By the rosy twilight,
With the moon overhead
Snuggle deep in your bed.
God will watch, never fear,
While Heaven draws near.
God will watch, never fear,
While Heaven draws near.

Go to sleep and good night,
You are safe in the sight
Of the angels who show
Christmas trees all aglow.
So to sleep, shut your eyes,
in a dream Paradise.
Go to sleep shut your eyes
In a dream Paradise.

by Karl Simrock. Music Brahms

So calming Jan. A lovely image springs to mind and that is consoling.
