The Sad Mother

Sleep, sleep, my beloved,
Without worry, without fear,
Although my soul does not sleep,
Although I do not rest.

Sleep, sleep, and in the night
May your whispers be softer
Than a leaf of grass,
Or the silken fleece of lambs.

May my flesh slumber in you,
My worry, my trembling.
In you, may my eyes close
And my heart sleep.
