Mother's Song: A Lullaby by Ellin Greene
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This tender, lyrical song is an outpouring of a young mother's love for her baby. She compares her little one to every good thing, from roses and pearls to the queen herself, in lovely, simple verses. In the charming subtext created by artist Elizabeth Sayles, the setting is an idyllic twilight world, where fairies and sprites play among the flowers and craft an exquisite gift for the sleeping mother and child. Collected in the English countryside by 19th-century folklorist Sabine Baring-Gould, the words of the lullaby have come down to us without music. A melody has been composed for this book and appears with simple piano accompaniment following the text. Spoken or sung, "Mother's Song" is a romantic rhapsody that goes straight to the listener's heart.
