LULLABY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Sleep, my baby, all the night
Last Line: Go to sleep!


Sleep, my baby, all the night!
Star and star for candle-light
Shining softly all about.
Not a breeze to blow them out.
Not a saucy cloud but soon
Sails from off the placid moon.
Moon and star the watch will keep:
Go to sleep!
Go to sleep!

Go to sleep, my baby dear:
Never fear!
If the wind blow out the light,--
If the moon go out of sight,
All the hours of dark and dew
Will the mother watch by you.
Mother still her babe will keep:
Go to sleep!
Go to sleep!
