VISIONS OF THE DUSK; A GEORGIA LULLABY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Sleep, my honey, dreaming time is here
Last Line: Sleep, my honey, sleep to-night, to-night


Sleep, my honey, dreaming time is here,
Fancy in her barge is drifting near,
In the slumb'ring pine the birdie sings
To the weary charge beneath her wings.
Sleep, my honey, sleep to-night, to-night.

Lay your head upon my heaving breast;
From my soul I grant you peace and rest;
Never sandman come to wake my child
With a melody so strangely wild.
Sleep, my honey, sleep to-night, to-night
