    Come to me now! O, come! benignest sleep!
    And fold me up, as evening doth a flower,
    From my vain self, and vain things which have power
    Upon my soul to make me smile or weep.
    And when thou comest, oh, like Death be deep.

Borne inward unto souls afar,
Along the Psalmist's music deep,

For gift or grace, surpassing this--
"He giveth His beloved sleep."

And may this storm be but a mountain-birth,
May all the stars hang bright above her dwelling,

Sleep on, Baby, on the floor,
Tired of all the playing,
Sleep with smile the sweeter for
That you dropped away in!
On your curls' full roundness stand
Golden lights serenely--
One cheek, pushed out by the hand,
Folds the dimple inly.

Longing to see the charmed door of dreams
Turn on its noiseless hinges, delicate sleep!
