From Chapter 12 of A New Eden, Part II of Idolatry…
“Honesto, there was a lullaby we learned when the choir came to your country a couple of summers ago. Would you like to hear it? You must know it.”
She cradled his head, rocking him, wiping him down as she sang:
Ili-ili tulog anay.
Wala diri imong nanay.
Kadto tienda bakal papay.
Ili-ili tulog anay. . . .
There was a smile on his lips. His eyes had closed. Skye glanced despairingly at Simon. She sang it again, in English:
Little one, sleep for a while.
Your mother is not here.
She went to market to buy some bread.
Little one, sleep for a while. . . .
“Honesto?” She shook him gently. She sighed, despairing. “Oh, Honesto . . .”
You can now enjoy Skye’s lullaby, as sung by the beautiful and talented Florencia Ristagno Roca….. (the singing starts about 30 seconds into the video)
