Thread Name: Lyrics Versions: Brahms' Lullaby
Subject: RE: Brahms Lullaby
I never thought about the meaning of the text until now.
I looked it up, and wherever I looked (on the web, in a book)
it says "Mit Näglein besteckt"
Perhaps these small nails (Näglein) are the thorns of the Roses?
I don't know, sorry.
