A WINTER SONG, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Come, little one with drowsy eyes
Last Line: Come where they wait for thee!
Subject(s): Winter

Come, little one with drowsy eyes,
The tree-tops are bare and brown.
Where are the blossoms, the beautiful things,
That fluttered all summer on silken wings?
Blooming in Lullaby-town!

Where is the path, too, to Lullaby-town,
And how must the baby go?
Down from the sky, in its postman's gray,
Some wee, snowy messages float this way,
They'll tell us the road, I know.

What shall we find in this unknown land,
And what will the baby see?
Brownies, and fairies and elves, I guess.
Gay little dreams, in their holiday dress,
Toys, and a Christmas tree!

Come, little one with the drowsy eyes,
Lullaby-town's a-glee;
Faster the little white messages fall,
Louder the little brown chickadees call,
Come where they wait for thee!
