Katniss and Rue's bond was unshakable. They formed a bond only because of the Mockingjay pin that Katniss wore. 'The Girl on Fire' showed the Capitol that the tributes were more than entertainment. They were people, real people. When Rue died, Katniss sang this song, called Rue's Lullaby:
"Deep in the meadow, under the willow A bed of grass, a soft green pillow Lay down your head, and close your sleepy eyes And when again they open, the sun will rise.
Here it's safe, here it's warm Here the daisies guard you from every harm Here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true Here is the place where I love you.
Deep in the meadow, hidden far away A cloak of leaves, a moonbeam ray Forget your woes and let your troubles lay And when again it's morning, they'll wash away.
Here it's safe and here it's warm And here the daisies guard you from every harm And here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true Here is the place where I love you."
