While She Sleeps

Harper's New Monthly Magazine

New York, New York

June, 1872

Tired of jest,
Kissed to rest,
Fled like a bird to its nest -
To my breast
Softly pressed,
Love is a gentle guest;
Sleep and rest!

Breathing low,
Love shall grow
All its dear charm to know.
Flowers so
Hours thro'
Sleep i' the bud and grow -
Sleep and grow.
