FIVE LITTLE WANDERINGS: 1. BABYHOOD, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Baby's gone awandering
Last Line: And strike the homeward trail.
Subject(s): Babies; Infants

Baby's gone awandering
But not so very far.
He's only off in dreamland
Where all the fairies are.
He's gone away to dreamland
Upon the by-lo train,
And when his slumber's over
He'll wander back again.

Baby's gone awandering
(The restless little thing)
To watch the trolls that caper
Before the goblin king,
The Lure-o'-dreams has won him
And led him on and on
To purple poppy meadows
And castles of the dawn.

Baby's gone awandering
But he will find his way
Back again to mother
And all his toys and play.
Baby's gone to dreamland,
But dreams were ever frail
And he will break their magic
And strike the homeward trail.
