Excerpt: ... AN INVOCATION TO SLEEP Hither, Sleep! A mother wants thee! Come with velvet arms! Fold the baby that she grants thee To thy own soft charms. Bear him into Dreamland lightly! Give him sight of flowers! Do not bring him back till brightly Break the morning hours! Close his eyes with gentle fingers! Cross his hands of snow! Tell the angels where he lingers They must whisper low! I will guard thy spell unbroken If thou hear my call; Come then, Sleep! I wait the token Of thy downy thrall. Now I see his sweet lips moving; He is in thy keep; Other milk the babe is proving At the breast of sleep!

And sounds of evening winging Like little angels blest Come softly, softly singing My darling one to rest. Hoffman Von Fallersleben. THE ROAD TO SLUMBERLAND What is the road to Slumberland?

A soft little night-gown, clean and white; a face washed sweet and fair; A mother brushing the tangles out of the silken, golden hair; Two little tired, satiny feet, from the shoe and stocking free; Two little palms together clasped at the mother's patient knee; Some baby words that are drowsily lisped to the tender Shepherd's ear, And a kiss that only a mother can place on the brow of her baby...
