WITH little red frock in the fire-light, in the lingering April
evening—
(The moonlight over the tree-tops just beginning to shine in at the cottage
door)—
Her big brown eyes and comical big mouth for very gladness unresting, like
a small brown fairy—
She stands, the five-year-old child.

Then, so gentle, with tiny tripping speech, and with a little wave of the
hand—
"Good-night" she says to the fire and to the moon,
And kissing the elder wearier faces,
Runs off to bed and to sleep in the lap of heaven.
