Black and White Sunday: Golden Slumbers

23 Feb

I find it so calming to watch animals sleep. They seem to sleep with such abandon. The animals always seem to be sleeping in weird and different places in the house. I think I was drying a rug on top of the washing machine and he decided it was comfy.

Golden slumbers kiss your eyes,
Smiles awake you when you rise;
Sleep, pretty wantons, do not cry,
And I will sing a lullaby,
Rock them, rock them, lullaby.

Care is heavy, therefore sleep you,
You are care, and care must keep you;
Sleep, pretty wantons, do not cry,
And I will sing a lullaby,
Rock them, rock them, lullaby.

‘Golden Slumbers’ is a lullaby from Thomas Dekker’s 1603 play Patient Grissel, written with Henry Chettle and William Haughton. You may recognize it because The Beatles used it in their song of the same name on their Abbey Road album.
