A CHILD'S PRAYER AT EVENING, by CHARLES GEORGE DOUGLAS ROBERTS Poet's Biography
First Line: Father, who keepest
Last Line: Asleep in thy dew.

(Domine, cui sunt Pleiades curae)
Father, who keepest
The stars in Thy care,
Me, too, Thy little one,
Childish in prayer,
Keep, as Thou keepest
The soft night through,
Thy long, white lilies
Asleep in Thy dew.
