NORTH-WEST PASSAGE: 3. IN PORT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Last, to the chamber where I lie
Last Line: And in the land of nod at last.

Last, to the chamber where I lie
My fearful footsteps patter nigh,
And come out from the cold and gloom
Into my warm and cheerful room.

There, safe arrived, we turn about
To keep the coming shadows out,
And close the happy door at last
On all the perils that we past.

Then, when mamma goes by to bed,
She shall come in with tip-toe tread,
And see me lying warm and fast
And in the land of Nod at last.
