SOMETHING CHILDISH, BUT VERY NATURAL; WRITTEN IN GERMANY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: If I had but two little wings
Last Line: And still dreams on.
Subject(s): Flight; Love; Sleep; Flying


If I had but two little wings
And were a little feathery bird,
To you I'd fly, my dear!
But thoughts like these are idle things
And I stay here.
But in my sleep to you I fly:
I'm always with you in my sleep!
The world is all one's own.
But then one wakes, and where am I?
All, all alone.
Sleep stays not, though a monarch bids:
So I love to wake ere break of day:
For though my sleep be gone,
Yet while 'tis dark, one shuts one's lids,
And still dreams on.
