Waking to happy sights and sounds


“Wake not, but hear me, love!
     Adrift, adrift on slumber's sea,
     Thy spirit call to list to me.

Wake not, but hear me, love!
     A gift from Sleep, the restful king,
     All happy, happy dreams I bring.

“Wake not, but hear me, love!
     Of all the world of dreams 'tis thine
     This once to choose the most divine.

So choose, and sleep, my love!
     But ne'er again in choice be free,
     Unless, unless—thou dream'st of me.”
