Translation:French Nursery Rhymes/Sleep, Child, Sleep

French Nursery Rhymes  (1881) 
C. B., translated from French by Wikisource
Sleep, Child, Sleep

SLEEP, CHILD, SLEEP.

Sleep, child, sleep.
Papa is tending the sheep,
Mama, over her little baby,
Is shaking a golden branch,
Which will sprinkle over the children
Dreams of pearls and diamonds.
Sleep, child, sleep.
