Happy Mothers’s Day! 💕💜💕💜
When we think of our Mothers and how much they mean to us, one piece in particular comes to mind, Songs my mother taught me, from Dvorák’s Gypsy Songs cycle. This song is not only about a passing of tradition from mother to child, but a reverie of the innocence of our youth and the purity of a mothers love…
Below it is performed by Dame Joan Sutherland in English translation:
In the days long vanished;
Seldom from her eyelids
Were the teardrops banished.
Now I teach my children,
Each melodious measure.
Oft the tears are flowing,
Oft they flow from my memory’s treasure.
Today, and everyday, we sweetly thank our mothers for all that they taught us so that we can carry on the tradition, to be love and to give love, wholeheartedly.
Thank you, to all of you Moms!
