Poetic Verses

When Slumber Is Done

Fond wishs play nightly, in slumber deep,
in pleasant scenes of forevermore dream
Sparkles and smiles forever to keep
held in capture that forever moonbeam
O' wish, with might, that the night should not end;
so that dream forever on should, now, play,
or with care to subject always to lend,
somehow, come true by the break of the day
Fantasy led by the heart's desire
prayed solomnly before slumber take hold
Reality of the heart on fire
with such a dream cast forever in gold
Pray that reality and dream be one
a end of the night when slumber is done
