The most beautiful lullabye

Bye and bye, bye and bye
The moon’s a slice of lemon pie
The mice who ate the other half
Have scattered star-crumbs in the sky

Bye and bye, bye and bye
My darling baby, don’t you cry
The moon is still above the hill
The soft clouds gather in the sky

— From Laura Krauss Melmed’s The Rainbabies

  1. If you google rainbabies movie there is a reading that comes up on vimeo. The woman reading the story sings a beautiful, almost gaelic sounding version of this song – it was much prettier than what I was singing and so I adopted it!
