Lullaby








"Sleep, my joy, fall asleep..."....this was the closing song of the evening program, "Good Night, Children" in Russia for several years. I learned it to sing to my eldest--she might giggle if I reminded her of this.

The animation for this clip is quite unusual. Is that really Mother Night, her eyes hidden under a hat, revealing the sliver-moon and stars, releasing them, and then granting us a tender smile, while she holds a house in her hands, where the sun will sleep until daybreak?
