LYRICS OF LOVE: 1, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: When in slumberland the dreams go forth
Last Line: Poured his magic lotion on my eye.
Subject(s): Love


When in Slumberland the dreams go forth
To my heart a darling maiden comes,
Stardust are her eyes, her lips love flame,
And an angel tune she softly hums.

Never 'neath the dwelling place of God,
Never by the lake or by the sea,
Was a man so blest as I am blest
With the love that Clara gives to me.

Oh, my heart will burn for ages long
From a fever that will never die,
For in Slumber land an elfin rogue
Poured his magic lotion on my eye.
