Oj Khodyt’ Son Kolo Vikon - Ой ходить сон коло вікон
Ukrainian, adapted from Sokalsky Sestri Trio
This incredibly beautiful lullaby was a gift to us from a listener far away – a viewer posted on one of our Youtube videos the message “I was so touched by this that it brought tears to my eyes, reminds me of the songs of the songs that my grandmothers used to sing.” The listener then suggested we look up the song Oj Khodyt’ Son. We are so glad we did.
The Dream passes by the window and meets Sleep by the fence. The Dream asks Sleep: "Where should we rest tonight?" “Where the house is warm, where the child is small: There we will go, and rock the child to sleep. We’ll put the cat to purr, and the child to nap.” Our house is warm; our child is small – Come to us, come to this cradle.
