Come in, my Angel, my only child,
come and sit comfortably for a while.
The icy winds are strong outside,
so take this pelt of animal hide.
Now drink this hot rejuvenation,
it is of my own creation,
will restore the soul in you,
help you to feel good as new.
It has honey, sweet like dew,
it has mint and rosehips too.
Here, now eat, you must be famished,
I have made some new,
braised lamb shanks.
Sleep now, Angel, rest your head,
I’ve made up a nice, cozy bed,
soft the pillows, fresh the sheets,
you are safe now, go to sleep.
