A Lullaby

by Patience Worth

Patience Worth

Dream, dream, thou flesh of me,
Dream thou next my breast.
Dream, dream, and coax the stars
To light thee at thy rest.
Sleep, sleep, thou breath of Him
Who watcheth thee and me.
Dream, dream, and dreaming,
Coax that He shall see.
Rest, rest, thou fairy form
That presseth soft my breast.
Rest, rest, and nestle warm,
And rest and rest and rest.
