  1. 2 of 5
    Stars shining bright above you
    Night breezes seem to whisper I love you
    Birds singing in the sycamore tree
    Dream a little dream of me

    Say night-ie night and kiss me
    Just hold me tight and tell me you’ll miss me
    While I’m alone and blue as can be
    Dream a little dream of me

    Stars fading but I linger on, dear
    Still craving your kiss
    I’m longing to linger till dawn, dear
    Just saying this

    Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
    Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you
    But in your dreams whatever they be
    Dream a little dream of me

    Stars fading but I linger on, dear
    Still craving your kiss
    I’m longing to linger till dawn, dear
    Just saying this

    Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
    Sweet dreams that leave all worries far behind you
    But in your dreams whatever they be
    Dream a little dream of me

This Day in History:
Lei Áurea: Slavery Abolished in Brazil (1888)

By the 1870s, the plantation culture of northeast Brazil was already crumbling, and the growth of the movement to abolish slavery threatened it even more. The slave trade had been abolished in 1850, and a law for gradual emancipation was passed in 1871. In 1888, while Pedro II was in Europe and his daughter Isabel was governing, slavery was completely abolished—making Brazil the last Western nation to do so. The law that officially abolished slavery was called Lei Áurea, which means what? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Ottorino Respighi

Ottorino Respighi (Italian: [ɔttoˈriːno resˈpiːɡi]; 9 July 1879 – 18 April 1936) was an Italian violinist, composer and musicologist, best known for his trilogy of orchestral tone poems: Fountains of Rome(1916), Pines of Rome (1924), and Roman Festivals (1928). His musicological interest in 16th-, 17th- and 18th-century music led him to compose pieces based on the music of these periods. He also wrote several operas, the most famous being La fiamma.
