A GIRL'S SONGS: 2, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: My watch beneath my pillow white
Last Line: And there are stars past the window-sill.
Alternate Author Name(s): Davis, Leland, Mrs.; Pawtuxie
Subject(s): Night; Watches; Bedtime


My watch beneath my pillow white
Whispers to me all the night.
My heart beats and my watch ticks,
And the fear of dying pricks
Like a pin God holds, and he
Stabs my brain with it gleefully.
My watch ticks and my heart beats,
And cool and smooth are the linen sheets;
And I am alone, and the house is still,
And there are stars past the window-sill.
