TO A BLIND BABE, SLEEPING, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Are thy dreams dark? Or is the light
Last Line: A kindling radiance appears.
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Babies; Blindness; Sleep; Infants; Visually Handicapped

Are thy dreams dark? or is the light
Alone denied thy waking sight,
While softer stars their vigils keep
Within thy hemisphere of sleep?

Yea: haply, as noon-blinded beams
Awake in darkness, o'er thy dreams
The pity that begets our tears,
A kindling radiance appears.
