Moon Cradle Lyrics

Moon Cradle by Loreena Mccennitt  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music



Moon Cradle The moon-cradle's rocking and rocking
Where a cloud and a cloud go by
Silently rocking and rocking
The moon-cradle out in the sky.

Then comes the lad with the hazel
And the folding star's in the rack
"Night's a good herd' to the cattle,
He sings, 'she brings all things back.'

But the bond woman down by the boorie
Sings with a heart grown wild
How a hundred rivers are flowing
Between herself and her child.

'The geese, even as they trudge homeward
They have their wings and the waste,
Let your thoughts be on Night the Herder
And be quiet for a space.'

The moon-cradle's rocking and rocking
Where a cloud and a cloud go by
Silently rocking and rocking
The moon-cradle out in the sky.

The snipe they are cryng and crying
Liadine, liadine, liadine,
Where no track's on the bog they are flying
A lonely dream will be mine!
