Folk-Songs: Invocation

Translation of Alma Strettell

GO hence, my beauty, go in peace to sleep;

And may thy bed of violets be made;

Three rays of sunlight watch above thee keep,

Twelve stars beside thy pillow be arrayed;

And may the moon come rest upon thy face;

Remember me, thou child of noble race:

And may the moon come rest upon thy head;

Remember me, thou lily crimson-red:

The morning star be shining at thy feet;

Remember me when thou dost rise, my sweet.
