NIGHT-BORN, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The fairest blossom of the light
Last Line: Restore us to her arms.
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Night; Bedtime


The fairest blossom of the light
Was nurtured in the womb of night,
An alien to the sun;
And to her bosom must she need
Recall each love-selected seed
When blossom-time is done.

And we -- by baptism of sleep
Her children -- waken but to keep
The memory of charms
And promises that ne'er too soon
Despite the blandishments of noon
Restore us to her arms.
