a poetic lullaby
- A – B – A
Here is Aline’s characteristic child-centered poetry set to music at its simplest and best. The melodic rhythm has a rocking quality, while the text is a collection of partner images chosen to reassure a child that the adult is there for him/her. Flower and springtime, river and ocean, hillside and rainbow …. and, at the song’s end, “if you were a sleepy child, I would be your blanket.” Sweet dreams!
