No need to hush the children for her sake,
Or fear their play:
She will not wake, mavrone, she will not wake.
'Tis the long sleep, the deep long sleep she'll take,
Betide what may.
No need to hush the children for her sake;
Even if their glee could yet again outbreak
So loud and gay.
She will not wake, mavrone, she will not wake.
But sorrow a thought have they of merry-make
This many a day.
No need to hush the children for her sake,
So still they bide and sad her heart would ache
At their dismay.
She will not wake, mavrone, she will not wake
To bid them laugh, and if some angel spake
Small heed they'd pay.
No need to hush the children for her sake.
She will not wake, mavrone, she will not wake.
