Taconicus Dark Lullabies (18) RE: Dark Lullabies 31 Jan 11


Are these (above) mostly made up verses? (I'm supposing so.)

There are actually real lullabies with dark-ish verses.

Bring no ill will to hinder us—my helpless babe and me,
Dread spirits o' the Blackwater, Clan Eoghan's wild banshee...
A little rest, and then the world is full o' work to do....

- The Castle of Dromore

Sleep O babe, for the red bee hums the silent twilight's fall,
Aoibheall from the grey rock comes, to wrap the world in thrall....

- The Gartan Mother's Lullaby
