liūlia dukrytėla " -
short Lithuanian lullaby is but two measures, repeated as to fit the lyrics.
"Hush-a-bye, my little daughter" it sings, and on -- "My beloved, how many times
during the day have I already picked you up, picked you up and carried you,
put you down in your cradle." The
little essay for piano on the tune begins with a opening gesture and then
states the melody with slight variation and extension.
